I don't know.  I've never tried it.

It didn't make it here - bloomed out the first year.  I think I have some
seedlings from using the pollen that do extremely well, though.

Not here.  I've grown it for several years.  It has gotten tall and doesn't
fall, but it's a sporadic bloomer and doesn't increase very well.  It's nice
when it does bloom, it just isn't a reliable  producer of blooms.

My climate is very different than Tyler, Texas.  I think Barbara and Linda
would have more in common with each other than I have with either.  Tyler
gets rainfall; I do not.  I get dry, intense heat.  I suspect Barbara gets
her share of that heat, but with considerable more humidity.
