Thanks, Tony--You're confirming my belief that if I keep these close to t=he
foundation of my house (basement temps inside never go below 60), the
radiated heat through the foundation may keep the soil temps 6-12 inches
from the foundation at tolerable levels  even  when winter goes to  -20
F,.My  former experience in Berkeley Ca , was that they grew in extremely
dry clay soil throughout summer with maybe only two  waterings and that t=he
roots formed a nearly impenetrable mat about 3 inches deep.   Of course,
winter was no problem there.   Adam Fikso, in Glenview, IL, USDA  Zone
a:  -23 F to l09F.
