I've only tried a few potted samples of these. I found them very 
charming. My understanding is that they are not supposed to do well 
colder than zone 8, so I've not tried to do much with them except pot up 
to get photos, but I'd like to be told I'm wrong. For you to have them 
last a couple seasons in zone 5, I'd say the proof could already be in 
the making. I offered these this spring and had some orders, but they 
are not usually a big ticket item for customers. Makes me wonder if they 
are difficult to grow.
