anyone tried Quercus acuta in my area?
I've seen some pics of Quercus acuta, the Japanese evergreen oak...and I'm curious if anyone in the zone 6/7 mid-atlantic has successfully grown one?
I like the evergreen oaks, and I know Q. laurifolia (really semi-evergreen) grows well here, but usually drops leaves before winter's done with. I've seen Q. virginiana but only at the National Arboretum.
Would it or Q. virginiana itself be hardier & more likely to survive here or the Q. acuta?
