    Although Cameroon Night is listed only to zone 5, I've been growing it in zone 3 for a number of years. It's quite hardy for my northern garden. The pattern is always consistent and stands out very distinctly among the others around it ... not gaudy, just a solid and reliable bloom. It's been trouble-free in the gardens, never had issues with any pests or any sign of rust. A keeper.
