Vernicia fordii and Acer davidii: good late foliage in the Asian Collection

Vernicia, the Tung Oil Tree, survived last winter and grew a bit this year. It's rooted firmly; if it makes it through this year it may well have developed enough of a root system to keep it around through even a cold winter or two. But who knows> We'll have to wait and see. That's one of the good things about gardening, waiting and seeing.

How hardy do you think the Vernicia should be? Maryland gets pretty damn cold doesn't it?
