  Hardiness of Philo. Giganteum ?

Hello. I am curious is there is any information on the hardiness of Philo.
Giganteum ?
I live in Northern California close to the ocean and my "little" Philo. is
not so little
anymore (they grow up so fast). Philo. Bipinnatifidum grow like weeds here
so I was
hoping the same would be true for the Giganteum.

Yes, Skip in zone 9 we have both growing quite large and not bothered by the
salt air, on the other coast. They have tolerated down to 28 but were
covered with freeze cloth those nights. Hope this helps. Adding a bit of
100% organic humus to the sandy soil keeps them green and healthy. The same
with the amorphophallus, they thrive with this and frequent fertilization.
