  • Posted by Merloo1 on Feb 21, 2017 8:03 PM concerning plant:
    I live in Zone 8b and am 2 blocks from the ocean. I don't have shade where I would like to plant this, but the temperature rarely gets above 75 and the ground gets full of moisture each night with the dew reaching 2nd story windows. Is this temperate enough to plant these successfully?
