I received 3 whips abt a month ago. The temperatures are 100 degrees average and dry as a bone (irrigating regularly) at 4500 ft. Every One of the whips, 3 wild Cherry and the 2 Black Walnuts has LEAVES! Don't know if they will make it through the winter but I am very pleased with Fox River Valley Nursery!
