I'd like to hear from people who grow this plant, particularly in colder
climates.  It's known to be somewhat tender, and certainly that has proved
true in my northern Massachusetts climate.  I have to be satisfied with A.
cristophii (note correct spelling, without the "h") to enjoy giant spidery
balls of bloom.  Do others find this species (schubertii) tender?
