CORG 20F and Front yard permaculture setup.
« on: April 28, 2018, 04:37:30 PM »
This is just the right side of my front yard
but i had a Blood Orange, a fig, autumn olive, jabo, Jamun
and several other plants.

in just this front bed, the main plant is the CORG
and i have peanut and strawberries as ground cover around it.
the peanut is a nitrogen fixer.
i had West Indian arrow root behind (North) of the CORG (not to shade it)
it died to the roots, but started coming back also.

In Jan 2018 it hit 20F here
and killed damn near everything, at least to the ground.
the CORG didnt blink...
i think i saw 2 or 3 leaves with slight tip-burn

After the chilly winter did it flower or fruit?

What a beautiful plant! Mine loses all its leaves every spring, but I have it exposed to frost every winter as well... I hope it fruits soon
