Shame, they're exceptionally dependable, but fade way before the heat starts, more than likely they require the frost period. - but you guys in Az have a lot of plants and cacti which I can only admire from afar as well, I have a collection of about 50 cacti & succulents which I keep under lights, tiny in size compared to what you can grow in Arizona! - Thanks locakelly!
