Similar story here, Bonaventure. (NW Arkansas, solid USDA zone 6, little snow
cover, wildly fluctuating temps rarely down to -20 F [-29 C] in winter.)
Except that for me, they're all hardy except the one that should be, Z.
aethiopica, the big white one.
I've had a couple of varieties out for more than 10 years now, and several
generations of their children as well. Others just a year or two, but so far
seem equally happy. At this point, except for aethiopica, which just isn't
going to grow outdoors for me, I toss them in the ground and am very confident
that they'll show up next year, regardless of their parentage.
