Hello Jim

I grow a selection from A. headborne hybrid called Pinockio
this one survives - 18°C without cover well established after 1 year
normally it flowers the second year after planting or fifth from seed
I don't know if it comes true from seed but it is I think the most hardy
good flowering plant
If you want I can send you seeds this autumn
