A clone shared with us by J. C. Raulston proven to be somewhat root hardy in the very deep South (along the gulf and south): odd rangy habit with small dangling bronze-orange blossoms; survives Z8 if given a long hot summer in order to establish a heavy root mass below winter 's eventual frost line; seems to produce blossoms more consistently in warmer temperatures than most selections. Not particullary showy in Northern gardens as needs intense light to perform well, and thus obviously not the best houseplant choice. Possibly the original clone designation for the cultivar now distributed as 'Marion Stewart.'
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
