Dear Friends,
	I suspect Jim S and I have similar climates.  I grew Z "Green 
Goddess' for a number of year- with flowering in light shade. It 
eventually dwindle -I think after some severe weather, but I am not a 
few of big green flowers so didn't fuss over.

	Years ago I live in the middle of Kansas City and had Z. 
albomaculata planted near a concrete sidewalk and if bloomed for 
years there. I suspect the concrete slab was a heat sink that helped 
it thorugh long cold winters.

	In my current drier 'Prairie' garden I can't seem to grow and 
of the colorful Z hybrids as I wish I could.

	Can't grow everything.		Jim W.
