I planted this same variety in the ground under a tree and they are doing very well and multiplying. I'm in southern Calif. inland.

Now I have 8 bulging the pot. They but forth white paint brushes every November for a month. I water them sparingly all year because they keep their leaves. I don't get around to fertilize them but they don't mind at all. They tolerate our frost to 26 degrees F.
