	So far, all we have grown of the sinningias has been one clone of each.
Our winters are usually fairly wet.  This has been the wettest winter in
recent memory and a cold of 10 degrees F.  I'm sure good drainage helps,
but these are really tough.  I have no doubt that there are many more
winter hardy species.  As with many plants, they may also require good
summer heat to produce enough sugars to account for this good winter hardiness.
