Amazing how hardy those Corylines are! I know coastal Scotland has relatively mild winters, compared to the eastern U.S. (where I live)... so I understand how they survive the winter there. But to me, it's equally surprising that these Cordylines can survive the SUMMER in chilly coastal Scotland.
I remember visiting Isle of Skye, back in the 1980s and saying to myself: "I've never been so COLD in August before!". My first action after leaving the ferry boat there was to buy a woolen sweater!
