Yes mine are definitely hardy, but it was the hardy varieties that had been
doubted here.  No one even thinks about the tender ones making it here as
anything but a houseplant.  Ellen had a few listed as just a bit hardier
than the 'Christmas Tree's I purchased, but were more expensive.

Considering the extensive vole damage I had this winter, I am surprised
these didn't get destroyed.  I pulled the straw covering off everything
yesterday and I have grave doubts about the existence of the 100 baby hosta
I planted last year.  They got into my pots of daylilies and munched away at
the crowns, too.  I see their trails just about everywhere.
