Hi Ina,

The Z. candida that I grew is a small form I dug out of a swampy ditch in
southern Louisiana. It must have gotten out of cultivation? They were
evergreen and multiplied nicely in a border in Louisiana. The plants do
occasionally form seeds and are pretty hardy to mild frost as Alberto
suggested. The leaves can freeze to a pretty good solid in winter days
(sometimes to 20F/-6C) and thaw out perfectly. What's more impressive is
that they are able to withstand the 100F/98C days in the muddy soils where
a lot of plants will have their roots boiled. Tough plants, pretty, and
should definitely be grown more often in hot places.
