Hi  Digby,

Do  you  mean  USDA zone  6 ?

Since my  growing South African amaryllids changed  from hobby to  
obsession I  have  become a  student of  South African  geography in an 
  endeavour  to  understand  those which  will tolerate my  climate  

With Pietermaritzburg  at  about  29.5 South  and  80km  from the East  
Coast it  is  surely  a  kinder  climate  than  Zone 6  which  I  
understand  to  have  minimum winter temperature  of  -18C  to  -23C.
