I would consider a $300 purchase if I could get 5-8 yrs out of it next to my pool. You just have to get a string of normal to above avg winters in a good microclimate. It's rolling the dice!
But I'm a boundary pusher. It's documented that after the 2010 freeze that destroyed cocos to Stuart that one survived pretty well in Melbourne. It's no different than the analysis people have put on the Solomans Island trachy.
