My zone 8 winters are why I am primarily planting basjoos. I understand that the ice creams are also hardy in zone 8, but I'm not counting on them as much as the basjoo.

I did recently plant some palms as well!

I'm more concerned with getting my clay rich soil (I'm in North Texas) amended enough to keep the bananas happy. I have a lot of tilling of the clay, and mixing in compost to do. I'm also hoping we have adequate humidity to keep them happy.

Between all the tilling and digging of 14 holes will keep me plenty busy while the new basjoos are getting sun acclimated.
