Thanks Diane. There are so many micro-climates in California and the Pacific
Northwest that your point is well taken.

It depends where in southern British Columbia your questioner lives.  I 
live there, in the rainshadow of the Olympic Mountains, where we get 27 
inches of rain a year, and there are native cactus growing on various 
small islands. However, a few hours drive away on the west coast of 
Vancouver Island, gardeners enjoy frost-free conditions and well over 
10 times the rain I get.

I am in Blue Dick country right now, and bought a lot of seeds of 
various California wildflowers at Tilden Botanic Garden.  I will know 
in a few years whether Blue Dicks will grow for me.
