It's best to cut flowers off after bloom to avoid crushing other nearby plants. In areas colder than zone 7 we recommend mulch to prevent freezing. 10-20-09: Vite Greenhouses in Buchanan, MI (Zone 5) report that it has survived there two years looking beautiful. Zone 5 Niles, MI also reports survival, 3 years.
Per literature "For plants grown under cover, greater uniformity can be achieved by starting forcing at 68°F-78°F until stem emergence. Following emergence, production temperatures of 60°F-85°F days and 50°-65°F nights are best."
