It would be nice if we could grow it here.
Occasionally a nursery will bring it in.
We have to use it as a houseplant for the winters.

Your climate in Calgary is a bit different from mine in Florida.

I, too, love this plant. I am in Zone 8b in Texas. The last couple of summers have been quite dry, and my Thurnbergia suffers if I don't give it extra water. Other than that, it's an excellent plant and when it's happy and blooming, always get plenty of comments from visitors to the garden. It has frozen to the ground a couple of times, but always comes back when the soil warms up in Spring.

A gardener in Texas Zone 9b reported poor results. I wonder why. She said hers didn't start blooming until fall, and then it was frequently cut back by frosts. Any ideas?
