According to the BIS species book, wattii is "not hardy."  Most of the UK
is Zone 8 or 9.  Japonica survives outdoors here in Zone 7a, but almost
never blooms.  The foliage is killed by temperatures in the low 20s, and
the plants return from the stolons.  Making me wonder even more about the
identity of Dennis' plants.
