I took a chance and planted two of these this year -- in zone 4a. They are thriving and blooming beautifully. If they make it through the winter, I'll call them really fantastic!
Update summer 2013: winter is NOT the problem. Rabbits seem to think these are candy. Fortunately, I have discovered a product that works, called Repellex. The rabbits ate all of my lilies, I replanted with the Repellex, and now I have some nice lilies again. Cobra is a favorite!
