I've been growing two plants of Doryanthes excelsa in very large pots in my 
conservatory for some years, and one has flowered a couple of times, though 
by no means at the height it attains in its native land. When I was in 
Australia, someone told me it was hardy in Tasmania, which made me think I 
might plant one of them outdoors here, but I see from the wiki description 
that they're native to a much warmer area.

Does anyone have experience growing this species in an area that 
experiences frost?
