Should I try Oyez?
Does anyone know how difficult Oyez is to grow? (Sharon, Tom?) The photos of
it are so beautiful, I'd like to try. But I don't want to needlessly kill a
rhizome if I don't have the right conditions (isn't it kind of rare?). I'm
in zone 8 or 9 depending on the year. We get enough rain in the winter to
get the Salinas river to flow above ground for a couple of months and next to
none in the summer. Summer temperatures usually get over 100F for a couple
of weeks, but it's always cool at night. We have frost a good part of the
winter, but not below 20F usually. Anyone who's grown Oyez, please let me
know if I should try it. Thanks.
