My plants were grown from seed acquired from Ron Ratko's collection 
list and some from Frank Callahan. The seed germinated at a low rate 
and took about 5 years to flower. I have not tried it in the open 
garden but it probably would survive down to around 15 F in a 
sheltered position among shrubs. Currently the plants are in raised 
beds under high cover and flowered this spring after a low of 17 F 
where they are growing.
