My Araucaria araucana (Monkey Puzzle) sailed through its second winter now here in NJ/Zone 7a/b. I saw one at the other end of town and it looked browned. I was really surprised by how mine showed 0 browning and this other one looked like toast. Only difference I can see it that the fried one is in a more exposed location..., more winter sun, and especially wind. Could winter winds make such a difference for an evergreen?
