Here's a few photos. I'll have a complete update from the yard sometime in August!
If you look carefully you'll see HUNDREDS of baby plants growing on the agave stalk in front of that second window. It took about 1 year (much of that time inside the garage) for the stalk to fully mature. My Loquat is right in the center of this photo. It's getting pretty big! It had no major issues with minimal protection last winter. Definitely a great zone 8 plant! Not as hardy as Fatsia. My basjoo has grown more since this photo was taken a few weeks ago. Maybe one day it'll establish itself into a nice clump!
