I've had very little success with A. griffithii here in Delaware and have
assumed that it was a problem of winter hardiness. However, if they survi=ved
a Michigan winter, albeit a mild one, I may have to try again. In general=,
few of the Himalayan species have survived here. Maybe it's the hot, humi=d
summers rather than the winters!
