They also seem to enjoy plenty of water in the Spring and summer months.

What does C. moorei like? I've read it likes half day sun, and a summer
dormancy. Does it require a summer dormancy, or will it be OK if it gets
year-round rain?  I've got it in a 10-gallon pot in sandy humus-rich soil.

How about cold, how much winter cold can it take. I don't mind if it loses
leaves but I wouldn't want to interfere with bud formation.  Last winter it
lost foliage when temps got a bit below 30 F.


Conroe, TX: still more rain, about 10 inches so far in June
