growing Esperanza in southwest oklahoma

Zone Southwest Oklahoma | tmefford added on October 12, 2015 | Answered

Has there been any success growing Esperanza in southwest Oklahoma? I've seen these in central Texas where it's more humid and not as cold as in my area of southwest Oklahoma but I haven't noticed any here. Do you know of anyone in Oklahoma having success trying to grow these? I would like to permanently plant them in my backyard without having to bring them inside every winter.

Esperanza are really only hardy to zone 8b.

It is unlikely that they would winter over in your zone.

Here is a few links for you.
