About tiger eyes

Canada Ca

Can I grow tiger eyes in my back yard in Calgary area and will it perform well in colder area. Calgary is in Zone 3.



I'm sorry to say I don't know what Tiger eyes is - do you have another name for it? One of the problems we have is that you guys over the pond, so to speak, use different common names from us here!

Hope the answer was in the www ref above from Grindle - Rhus is hardy up to minus 15 degrees F here, but that's not low enough for you guys, I'm sure. It may tolerate more though, it's just that my book only deals with how it does in England.
