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.
