    Hey all,

    Have any of you seen the large specimens of Dicksonia Antarctica in front of a large office building in downtown Vancouver on Alberni Street? (I think they are at approximately Alberni and Thurlow). They are quite large and despite the fact that they are in quite a protected location, I am amazed that they have lasted this long here considering I've read that they are only hardy to -5C. What kind of success if any, have any of you had in growing Dicksonia Antarctica in these parts?
