Steve, I grew mine in the sandhills of Florida, SW of Gainesville where
freezing temps were not uncommon. 1994 they bloomed well, 1st yr. 2nd yr
2/10 flowered, 3rd 2/10 came up the next we left to move in town, but none
even seemed to remain. I can see how one becomes smitten by these.  Raise
your beds if you do.

> Can anyone tell me about my chances of success with this plant here in the
hot and wet SE USA.  I have placed it in my "dry" garden with the best
drainage I can provide it.  It has already put out its first bloom for me.
I just want to see it again next year bigger and better.  I'm also
considering planting much more of it in less ideal locations.
