Thanks, Arnold.

I see from the Google results that these are rated zone 5-9, some rate them
5-8. Interestingly, Mobot had a page there too. Here are the cultural
instructions: Use organically rich, very well-drained soil in full sun.
Plant crowns 4-6 in deep. (Now this is in Missouri and perhaps this is to
further protect them from freezing?) Winter mulch to protect young plants
from early frosts. Mentions root rot if soil is not very well-drained. Says
root rot may occur in poorly drained clay soils.

Well, from what I have seen written, they 'sound' growable. I wonder what's
up with Ken's?
