Can a Baobab tree be grown in USA?
Baobab is hardy in USDA zones 10 to 12 and needs excellent drainage. Both frost and wet soil can easily kill the trees.
A few areas of southern Florida and southern California are suitable for growing baobab in the ground, but most North American gardeners will be growing it in a pot.
The Baobab tree is a dominant force on the African landscape in dry areas all over the continent including Madagascar, West Africa and South Africa.
Baobabs also grow in Australia having their seeds transported there from so many generations ago.
