Re: hardiness of Sauromatum

>From my own personal experience with this aroid going back over
twenty years, I can say that it is quite hardy in USDA Zone 6a
(NE Tennessee), if planted so that the corm is covered with soil
at least 3"-4" deep.   I have them in large foundation plantings
as well as an exposed raised bed and find them equally hardy as
long as the corm itself  is planted deep enough that it doesn't
become frozen through.   The raised bed plants come up around 3
weeks earlier in the Spring than the foundation plantings.  This
I assume is due to the soil temperatures increasing faster in the
raised bed.   Right now they are beautiful!
