Prince Rupert's environment can be challenging for non-native trees despite its mild winters. The growing season is fairly long, but dull and cool with July means struggling to reach 13C/55F. Exotics from bright or warm-summer areas are exceedingly scarce but there are a few successful plantings as shown below.
