It was  destroyed up to the roots, started to grow next summer, but was killed  the following winter.
Best regards,

That is bad news. I read they made grafts after the first winter, but never read anything about it again.
At least it is not the hardy mandarin one was hoping for.

I bet it was a hardy citrus, just not hardy enough to live in Washington DC, which is way out of citrus territory.

Is BocaJoe member in another forum?
His last post on houzz com is from last summer.
