jons0027 Posted April 29, 2021 Report Share Posted April 29, 2021 (edited) Long story short I'm in the market for a new trachy. I'm in central Virginia where they aren't unheard of, but still not always easy to find. At this point the options within my budget appear to be either getting a larger, more established tree, 15 gal, 4-5ft that was brought in from further south (i.e. FL, gulf coast, etc), OR a smaller tree that's been grown closer to my locality, i.e. 5 gal, 1-2ft. I've read conflicting advice about what's more important for hardiness & health: where it was grown versus initial size. Any thoughts or experience? I'm usually a cheapskate with plants, often rescuing clearance stuff from shops, getting suckers from friends, and plucking stuff from the wild. I'd hate to drop coin on a larger trachy if it's a potential issue having it brought in from a far away reason. But I'm also impatient like every gardener and would love the instant results of a larger plant. Thanks! Edited April 29, 2021 by jons0027 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
