Re: what's blooming?

The Plants Database, which is based on gardeners' observations and experiences more than anything else [so reliability is a bit iffy], reports it's hardy to 20 degrees F. I think that's 8B or 9A. As I've complained before, A-Z is unrealistically cautious about minimum temperatures--or maybe it's the refrigerator test; keep it at 50 degrees for 4 months and it will croak.

Since I've never read the small print in A-Z, I have no idea what their minimum temps are based on, other than caution.

Kitty, it's a house plant here. A-Z says it's hardy only to 50 degrees.
