	Does anyone grow this species in the ground in a cold 
climate? I know it has a weedy reputation, but after seeing it 
blooming lushly on the Oregon Coast last spring, I finally placed an 
order for this fall.

	After checking a few references, it is given as hardy to 
Zones 9/10 and suited to humusy shade. I tend to doubt all this.

	So please Robert and others give us more experience with this 
charming weed. Is it hopeless here in Zone 5?

	Not too late to cancel my order.	Thanks	Jim W.
