Super

Commandé un specimen il y a presque un an et reçu bien emballé et en bonne santé. Je lui ai fais une place dans une fosse de terre de bruyère auprès d'un chêne avec une exposition au soleil le matin et en fin d'après-midi. Il a été paillé avec des écorces de pin maritime avec une couche rajoutée juste avant l'hiver et un film d'hivernage. Malgré les -18 que nous avons eu il n'a presque pas souffert (quelques pointes de feuilles noircies). A l'automne dernier il était déjà couvert de petites fleurs. En ce moment il fait de belles feuilles bien vertes. Aucun parasite ni aucune maladie pour le moment, pas d'entretien particulier. Ravi d'attendre quelques années pour le voir grandir.
