Growing Paw Paw Trees in Maine

Anonymous added on June 29, 2011 | Answered

I want to grow Paw Paw (Asimina triloba) in a Zone 5 area. According to the zone map, I am in 5b. The temperatures sometimes drop below -20, so I'm thinking microclimate with companion plants. I have a large crabapple about 25' from the house, on the southeast side, and a large arbovitae, about 30' away, on the east side. As the paw paw is a part sun shrub, I'm thinking that this would be enough protection from 'snaps' that might go colder. What do you think?
