Yes they can grow there, usually in pots,
rebloomers do better then spring only bloomers in that area. color can be
affected by heat, soil Ph and chemicals. when we get real hot here (over
90) flowers have a tendency to fade out.

I have a question for anyone in the group who has experience with
this. Does anyone know if TB's will grow as far south as Ocala Florida
area and if so do the colors seem to be effected but the climate?
I appreciate any input possible.
Thanks in advance! We are still anxiously awaiting the blooming of
the TB's around the Champaign Illinois area. It's going to get down to
45 tonight so I don't expect too many to pop open tonight. It will warm
up eventually I suppose. The bloom looks like it is going to be great when it
does finally happen.
