    They are fully hardy in canadian zone 4 with a good snow cover. I think you are right: they should be difficult to grow in Alberta without protection.

    They grow 45 to 90 cm tall. To my eyes they are not big plants.:)

  17. Aug 26, 2011 #217
    YES it would be worth a seasonal pass!
    I passed envious a long time ago! You've got an unbelievable collection!
    It's nice that we can enjoy your efforts as maintenance is not what I'm envious of at this point in time!

    I agree! I wish I could grow them better. They seem to get real leggy after a year or two, climbing out of the soil.
