Dear Roland and all,
	This cv is marketed as 'Pinocchio' in the 
US . I just went through a half dozen bulb 
references (it wasn't even in Phillips and Rix!) 
and found no hardiness recommendation colder than 
Zone 7. Close enough, but your -12 C is my 10.4 F 
and not even close to most winters here that get 
below 0 F or -5 F (-17 to  -20 C). We get these 
temps for extended period of night and day, not 
just a passing overnight coldest temp.

	I need convincing they are hardy in Zone 
5.  Missouri is the 'Show Me ' state. 'Nuf sed'

		Best	Jim
