Thanks for showing the pic. Seeing the mountains in the background, it is a lot different than I had imagined. I was not aware that I. tasmanica was an alpine species. I guess I will be happy if I can keep them alive until winter when I can provide nice cool growing conditions. 


Thanks again for posting the pic!
