@w03: I just got it, so hopefully it survives Aug/Sept/Oct. I keep the windows open during the summer so I get a nice cross-breeze at night from all the ocean air rolling in, so hopefully even if it does get in the 90's, the drop in temps at night will give it a good rest. If not...well, then then I'll ship it off for the summer or for good. I only keep plants that I find easy to grow. Oddly enough, the worst growers for me are spectabilis, ventricosa red, sanguinea orange, and inermis.
