  Re: [Aroid-l] Aroid hardiness

We have not updated the aroid hardiness list in a while, although we
have added data that been sent over the last few years. Now is a good
time for a new round of updates. You can find the current aroid
hardiness list at http://www.aroid.org/horticulture/hardy.html

We would appreciate everyone who has input to send it to our research
horticulturist Lynn Butler at lynn@plantdelights.com. Once will have
compiled the additions, we will have the new list posted on the aroid-l

We would like your comments on winter hardiness observations for these
and any other aroid species. We only need information that extends the
cold tolerance of a species. For the data to be useful, we require
actual air temperature data that the plants survived without benefit of
snow cover. Please understand that some Zone 8 plants can survive in
Zone 3 if the snow cover comes early enough, so these results are
skewed as they relate to the plants true ability to withstand cold.
Thanks and we look forward to your information.
