I have found this plant growing on Edisto Island SC and in Mexico Beach Fl. I live in Lexington SC. I found a large plant in Florida w/ lots of small "babies" around it. I am attempting to transplant some here to SC. My friend in Edisto has some that do well in their moderate winter. I'm curious to see how they do here.
