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.
