I have just acquired this Tokiwa gaki persimmon shohin bonsai and just moved to the Huntsville AL and this is an evergreen species of persimmon so my question is what is the best winter protection for this species of persimmon. I believe it’s more of a tropical tree but again not sure as there is not a lot of information especially in the US.
I do not have this cultivar but believe it is native to China and other locations in south east Asia. Sub-tropical temperate zones. I would protect it from freezing over the winter.
I have kept my black persimmon in the greenhouse where a heater is installed to prevent freezing temperatures.
