  • I live in zone 10 Southern California (Sunset zone 22). Pastel Point has grown remarkably well for me here. It's coped surprisingly well with the summer heat, possibly because the plants are shaded in the afternoon but get sun all day until about 2:30 pm. The stems and leaves are upright and stiff, wide and grayish green-- no purple. Flowers abundant and large. -- WikiGuest - 29 Apr 2022
