Gardeners' Notes:

Positive BayAreaTropics On Sep 22, 2008, BayAreaTropics from Hayward, CA wrote:

These whole sun Parasol series are great small tropical vines for California. Like the family they are in, the Apocynaceae,which includes Plumeria,Oleander,Pachypodium,and Adenium, The flowers can't be mistaken for anything but tropical.
I have found them to be hardier than zone 10..9b easily most climates that stay above 25f. This particular cultivar is rated down to 20f! by the grower.
Water and fertilize regularly during the warm months.
If they ever breed them into the yellows..oooof.
