Thanks Mary Sue. Hopefully we can get more specifics on just how much annual
rainfall this person's site receives.

This plant is widespread in California, spilling into Oregon and Baja 
California from the coast to the foothills and even to the deserts 
occurring from 0 to 7545 feet (2300 meters). One would expect it to be very 
adaptable or at least that there would be a variety from a particular area 
that would be fine in British Columbia. It doesn't seem to be bothered by 
rain where I live. We average about 60 inches (152 cm.) and some years a 
lot more. I was excited when I found one to show Uli when he visited since 
they were just starting, but he had already seen them in larger numbers in 
Southern California.
