They seem to have identified it. Wondering if it is suitable for z 9 Fla.

Rhodoleia championii is not grown by anyone in South Florida. I checked with my three best sources in Homestead and two of them had never heard of it. Based on what I read on various websites, I doubt you'd have much luck in zone 9.

Here's a link to someone selling seeds. If you buy the seeds, send me some and I'll try starting them in the mistbed when we get home from Italy.

Gary - I would not think a plant grown in a South Carolina nursery would grow well in Florida.
