Re: The cold hardy list
Just to put in my 2 cents here-my Musa basjoo survives well with no protection. I left the leaves and all and they fried in the hard frosts but acted as mulch. I also had a lasiocarpa come back, although it looked rather tiny and forlorn. It was under a foot of straw. Sikkim failed to survive.

"If by a liberal, they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind; someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions; someone who cares about the welfare of the people, their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties; someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicion that grips us; that is what they meant by a liberal, I am proud to be a liberal."
