I thought Taiwan was quite cool at high elevations, and why not the more
northerly south African flora from the East Cape which would appreciate
extra warmth and summer rain.
Surely many  winter growing  African bulbs might well accommodate
temperatures in Taiwan provided they are not really high altitude and cool
growing species, and provided that water is restricted during hotter times
of the year
how do the temperatures in this link compare to conditions which members of
the PBS in warmer areas grow South African bulbs?
