In reading the plant file for this plant I was disappointed to read that it wasn't hardy in my 5b so I looked it up on the internet and found that they say it is good from zones 3 to 9.
Don't know who made this plant file but it could be updated I'm afraid that it would shy people away from it at a zone 6 it did me.
