Diascia has been hardy in my zone 8a.
I planted this particular Diascia last year in the spring of 07 and it has not died back! It was 6 inches wide and about 5 inches tall when planted. It is now 34" wide and 16" tall. After blooming profusely for 2 months, it will have few flowers on it at all times until it goes to sleep in the winter. Super easy to care for, I fertilize twice a year and thats it. It's located in a raised bed and gets morning shade and full afternoon sun.
