Q.Royal Empress tree

Zone Maine,04974 | Dodgedaddie added on September 16, 2017 | Answered

HELLO Every one.
I have sprouts that I took and started in pots from my Royal Empress (Royal Paulownia Tree)
They all took an look really great.
The question I’m asking is what to do with them for the winter months. I’m In Maine.
Should I just take them in the house?
Put in my cellar or out in the garage. Yes it would be cold but not the bitter cold/wind/snow?

Any Help Would Be A Help

They can survive naturally from zones 3 to 8. They appear to be very hardy trees. If you want to take them into the house, and let them get light, and a head start, they would probably benefit from that. Then after the first year, they will survive outdoors. Here is an article that will give you more information on the tree: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/royal-empress/worlds-fastest-growing-shade-tree.htm
