I agree! Absolutely lovely!

I know nothing of arilbreds, have never tried to grow them. How far
north will they thrive? I believe my dry ridge top here in the Ozarks
would be dry enough, but I think I might be more zone 5 than 6 some
years...It does get below zero here most years, if only for a very short
time. Most years, I'd say no colder than 5 or 10 degrees below and that
only once a winter for a short time, but I have seen -20 once in the
last 20 years!
