Friends of the Arboretum Lecture
"Growing Hardy Citrus in Zones 7b & 8"
Keith Endres, Ecologist, Landscape Characterization Branch, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
November 15, 2007 (Thursday) – 7:30 PM–9:00 PM
With warmer winters the last decade, there has been a surge of interest in hardy citrus. By selecting fascinating new varieties and old cultivars developed by the USDA more than a hundred years ago, gardeners in much of the Southeast can experiment with their microclimates and grow some type of citrus. Not all varieties will produce commercial quality fruit, but many will be beautiful ornamental plants with culinary uses – not to mention a great conversation piece.
