    Montanum in progress. Difficult to install in German gardens.

    Job well done. That is a tough one to grow even in its native region. I don't know of anyone successfully growing it in the eastern US - perhaps a few folks in the far north and Canada. Never seen or heard of one in Japan either.

    Personally, I'd try the look-alike hybrid C. Sebastian since it no doubt is far easier to grow.
