  • It survives Texas ice storms every year. I have some I planted when we built this house 8 yrs ago. It is still wonderful. Nebraska winter are more harsh though. Check with your nursrey. Even if it didn't...$2 is a great deal. You could always pot it now, brin it in for the winter and plant in the spring so it has a long season to establish before the next winter.

  • I'm not so sure it can withstand a Nebraska winter. I would pot it as a plant that can be moved in and out of the house as weather permits.

  • you should buy it now but keep it under a shade tree until the fall..just be sure it stays watered well..its never good to move plants during the hotter months..
