Well, fulvas and brevicaulises are native to Ohio...so my humble guess is
that LAs would do just fine here.  I'm in Cincinnati and I'm ordering about
half-a-dozen LAs from Iris City Gardens down in Tennessee.  :)

Why don't you send your sister some of yours???

BTW, Dorothea K. Williamson is renowned for being cold hardy.

Nicholl's Gardens in Virginia http://www.he.net/~ngardens/ also carries
some LAs...including some rebloomers!  Actually I think Iris City has some
too come to think of it.
