Dear all;
I have grown T. gigantea in Zone 5 for years, but have found
T divericatum/roxburghii marginal to tender; certainly not hardy. I
grow T. divericatum as a 'ground cover' in a very large potted Crinum
asiaticum. The pot is in full sun and setting in a deep saucer of
water in summer and MUCH dried in a sunny window in winter. Grows
like a weed. Blooms off and on all summer.
