Just bought one of these. In Australia, where I live they are marketed as temperate to subtropical. Subtropical being about 10-11 in USDA zones. So given I'm in a subtropical zone, I bought it. Interesting to then find this website (that I do a lot of research on - usually BEFORE I buy a plant) puts this as a Zone 4 plant. I'll see how I go and report back.

My neighbor has this plant and it stopped me in my tracks when I saw it Saturday. Magnificent! Had a million tiny bells all over it. She has it is a very shady area and her soil is ammended to where it is very rich.

I just purchased this plant and it looks wilted. I haven't planted it yet because I was afraid it might be too cool. We just went from 65-70 weather down to 40-45 weather. 03/19. I am new at this gardening and guess I will have to learn by trial & error unless someone knows if it is safe to plant this outside in this temperature

I don't recommend this plant for Summerville, SC. Don't know why, but it doesn't survive this climate (hot and humid) and/or soil conditions (clay, clay, clay). Sad, though, because it's such a beautiful plant.
