Hey all. Just moved back down south. I know that caerulescens and caerulipes are native to the area but I was wondering if we non native woodloving species might do well outdoors in a bed. Like ovoids, azures, or cyans? Anyone have experience with those species in this hardiness zone 7B

Thanks Arathu. I'll have to give that a read soon. I think ovoids would do well here. They are abundant in VA which is not far. I'm also wondering how subaeruginosa would do since the forests here are so heavily dominated by pines.

I "wood" try the multi-species approach to hedge bets... at the slow rate woodlovers go ...if you try one per season you could be at it some time... which aint so bad in itself. They all have the same germinating/starting parameters so why not do a test-plot for as many as possible,

 

Good luck.

I definitely agree with testing multiple species....hell after this winter many might think they were in their home territory.....

 

I think the subs are good one to try for certain.....especially with the pines......

 

But a bed of wood chips under the pines works well too....test a few for sure...

you may just have to water it frequently like i do, cuz the cold seasons arent that wet out here sadly:/ though i am sure that there are times when they could occur out here naturally if spores were present, which they are now(;
