They are but they are native to the Canaries, so have to be carefull during the winter. I have got away with doing nothing so far but fingers crossed for this winter. They take up to 3 yrs to flower.

i have got some in pots but because we had frost to -6 last year They are going into the greenhouse-do you feed them with anything and when if so?i was planning to water quite sparingly?

I dont feed them with anything apart from what nature throws at them. Fingers crossed they will make it through the winter. I havn't had to wrap them in anything yet hopefully it will be another mild winter. next year should be flower time.
