I am Sooooo excited!! [clappy] My local garden store has EDELWEISS!!! I just could not believe my eyes when I saw it. [Frown] These are such special flowers and I have never seen them here.

Has anyone grown them? Any tips? Im concerned because the tag said zone 5 and Im in 6. Worried maybe it wont get cold enough for them over the winter. To top it off, they want full sun, and my full sun area is a microclimate because of the sun bouncing off the siding on the house.

My strategy is to basically get a ton of them and hope they make it!

I have some of the seeds and understand your concerns comepletely. I'm in zone 7a and although I don't think I have much of a chance I just have to try anyway. Good luck with yours.

Good luck to you too! I got some seeds a few years ago and didnt get them to grow, but that was way before I knew enough to start anything indoors. We'll have to keep each other posted on their progress. [wavey]
