RE: Amorph paeoniifolius-cold tolerance

Some of these tropical beasties are hardier than we expect.  I have =
grown Sauromatum (yes Wilbert, Typhonium) venosum and Amorphophallus =
konjac in the garden for a number of years when I was in zone 5 =
(Napoleon, Ohio).  The winter temperatures would get to -10F (-25C) or =
even lower.  While I dug the tubers in the fall I always managed to miss =
some.  These were in an unprotected spot and so were fully at the mercy =
of the weather.  Next spring some at least (who knows how many others =
failed to survive) would emerge apparently no worse for the experience.  =
Mind you, I would never trust my large tubers to the elements.  I =
suspect, however, that the true cold tolerance of many of this group has =
never been tested.

 I guess we must settle this point. The said photo is of Dracunculus
 vulgaris. Am. paeoniifolius would not survive subzero (in Celsius that
 is) and looks quite different. For one thing, Dracunculus has a "stem"
 with leaves while flowering. Am. paeoniifolius flowers leafless, and
 there is much more. >>

Hi Wilbert,
     Not to argue with the authorities here but I disagree that A.=20
paeonifolius will not survive in subzero temperatures in the ground with =
