Re: A couple S. minor plantings downtown Nashville
I saw a similar planting of 2 or 3 Minors in Red Bank, NJ in September, but they were very small, half brown, and I don't think in any kind of shape to take a 7a winter there. Granted, Red Bank is near "big water" (as Gary Hollar used to say) but, this planting was very exposed, out on a roadway median. That means a lot of abuse with regard to wind, salt, winter sun.
