If you are zone 7 or warmer, look at the background of MDBs prior to
acquiring them. If they have a large percentage of pumila, they will
probably need more winter chill than zone 7 can provide. If their
background is largely chamaeiris they will bloom without the extended
winter-chill that pumila demands.
