Says zone 10-11, but mine are doing fine here in Zone 9B. No problem with a couple of lightly frosty (upper 20's) nights this winter, and they've been blooming this year since the end of January. Needs very little care; seems to benefit from occasional deadheading but I haven't done anything else with it.
