Re: Information

From: "Patterson, Dallas" <nye@mail.fidalgo.net>


Chasmanthe floribunda is reportedly hardy down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit 
(USDA Zone 9) or -6 degrees Centigrade. In zones where the plant is not 
hardy, the corms should be kept dry and stored for the winter in dry 
packing material. Its culture is the same as the gladiolus. However, 
don't forget to stand back after planting...Chasmanthe floribunda can 
grow to about 10 meters (30 feet)!
