I have I.unguicularis outside on the southside of my plant room. This is
the second winter for it to be in the ground. I also have one potted in
the plant room just in case the outside one didn't make it when I moved
to Nebraska from New Mexico. The out side plant came through last winter
in great shape! It is still green as I write this. (The inside plant is
blooming) I am in zone 5 here in Omaha, according to local nurseries.
