Zone 8 - Texas - First haskap of spring

Borealis, Tundra and Berry Blue were reported to be leafing out the last week of February in zone 8, just south of Ft. Worth, Texas: "Yes, they are leafing out right now.  I noticed them about three days ago, coming out before anything else.  They were exposed to the weather (south side of a barn), but the ambient temperature was about 6 degrees, two different nights, and below freezing for a week. Daytime temps now in the 80s. The real question is how they do from July 15-Sept 15.  Ask me again in November." Daniel, TX
