It was me who psoted the message in question, I think. In a 
nutshell it went something like this. I had spent quite a few bucks 
over several years in trying to buy PCN's and grow them here in the 
North Okanagan Valley (zone 5 winters with hot,dry summers). 
They all died. Then I tried seed from the SIGNA exchange and 
suddenly I had survivors. Their first bloom followed a winter with 
several days of temperatures below -30C but with about 12" of 
snow cover. They are now going into their 10th season here and 
transplant readily in the local area. An interesting test will be how 
well they travel to other climes.

Some selections will be sold this year by Ambrosia Gardens I think.
