    D. filiformis ssp. filiformis for as much as I know is very tolerant of many different conditions and to me atleaste are considered weeds because they are all over the place. They are pretty hardy, maybe not as hardy as D. rotundifolia but it is pretty close.

    Glider. I got one of these as a stowaway with some sarrs I recieved from JBL and he lives in PA. So I assume they are hardy to survive with the Sarrs outside in PA.

    D. filiformis ssp filiformis is native as far north as New Jersey.
    Jest the warmer ones like Fla Giant, Fla 'Red' and Tracyi may not take so well to the colder temps.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    I put a bit of pine-needle mulch on them (nothing fancy, just pine needles gathered from a local park, where I make sure there's no pesticides or herbicides being sprayed)

    I have heard 12" deep recommended, but I usually end up with a mound about 6-8" deep and have not lost a single D.filiformis ssp filiformis yet, same with typical VFTs.
    I know a guy who has some growing totally unprotected a few hours north (and a few zones, I'm thinking he must be in a 3 or lower) and they also do fine, they really do seem to grow better than D.rotundifolia, even, despite not being native to here

    Not so much for some other Genera, but that was something else what wiped them out.
    And in the worst case, get some seeds stratifying mid-winter to replace any losses, but I don't think you have anything to worry about Alex
