WOW! Wonder how hardy this succulent is?

According to the information in PlantFiles, it's hardy down to about 25 degrees F. By the way, the name of this one is Pleiospilos nelii. I'm fortunate enough to live in coastal San Diego, California (10b) where temps don't get down that low. Actually, as I understand, the succulent capital of the USA is in northern San Diego County. Altman Plants (the largest succulent supplier to the country) is headquartered there. No, I'm not bragging...but, I am pretty happy to be in close proximity.
