    I grow this in nearly full sun near the roof of my cool greenhouse. This is a first blooming for me.

    OK, this just convinced me I need one. Does this take a dry winter?

    Kelly, I'm pretty sure it takes a dry winter. I grow it with my dockrillias, so it gets a dry winter just by its spot in the greenhouse.

    I give mine such. It loses its leaves and likes it sorta dry in the first place.

    I also dry mine out over the winter. Very light spray once ever couple of weeks.
