>Hello Mr  Waddick and all fellow "miogaphiles",

>Some people recommend Cautleya spicata for growing outside in our zone too.

Dear Mark and all,
	This reminds me of other tries and losses: Hedychium never 
did well in pots for me and died in the ground. Tried 3 or 4 sorts.
	Roscoea - can't tell how many of these I've grown from seed 
or plants and killed. Nothing even close although I have seen them 
growing lushly in just slightly warmer climates.

	Never tried Cautleya, but would appreciate experience from 
other growers. Googling suggests Zone 7 and warmer.

		Anyone grow it in colder climates.		Best 
		Jim W.
