I have not seen one like this...I would certanly have more than one if I find them.
Oh , just a side note, we are apple country here in Washington, Monday we took a ride here in our area; hours of just driving through and around apple orchards, up and down hills and valleys, they are getting ready to pick now. but I have lived here so many years, and have never seen the extent of the orchards right in my back yard.Now I know , and it is not just here,Spokane and Wenatchee area also. Immense area.Yet we cant get a decent apple unless we actually go to an orchard in the fall , because everything is picked too early so they can ship and store. I remember as a young person in Connecticut we took long drives and went to orchards for apples in the fall and the fragrance of ripe apples was so rich and strong, it was awesome!
"knew" she was a girl, but when I looked up this plant in my plant book it said the common name was Wispering Katie. Since we planned on naming her Katie, after my childhood cat, I knew it was a sign I was right.
Bernice, that's crazy living surrounded by all those apples and not being able to get them in your own grocery stores!
They revised the zones earlier this year, and many changed. Plants don't always pay attention to zones, but it's a good starting point.
The Yellow Birch of the USA is on track to migrate north of the border by 2100.
This seems incredibly slow to us, but think of the effect on less hardy plants that are not long lived and cannot sustain a migration.
Sorry off my soap box now.
Certainly not my field of expertise, but personally I'm not going to worry about it. I've always been a naturalist trying to avoid using chemicals when at all possible. It just makes sense to care for the earth that good Lord gave us to keep it healthy for for those that come after us.
