Oh no, are all night bloomers tropical? I haven't looked yet, I just assumed they were hardy as well.
I thought about getting a tropical but we do get cold down here and I haven't really done any research into how cold they can stand.

Dutch, LOL that made me giggle. Don't feel bad, I don't know anything about them either. I am learning as I go. I didn't know there was a tropical and hardy lily difference so we are even.
My lilies tend to start to open right after I leave for work and close right before I get home so I thought a night bloomer would be nice so I could see some of the flowers during the week.
The tropical versus hardy is what temperate climate it will survive in. :)

"Viviparous" seems to be a type of night bloomer that will tolerate cooler climates. I won't bother planting anything I have to mess with during the winter. I am waaayyy to lazy for all that.
I like the "sink or swim" method. Hehe
We stay pretty warm down here but I'm not sure it qualifies as "tropical". I've got to do more reading before spending the $$ on a night bloomer.

My step father always said "adapt or die" I guess that comes in handy only for certain situations... lol
Research is key! good luck on your search for the perfect night bloomer :)

I see here that they want to ban totally in ground ponds in flood areas because of fish from them getting into lakes and streams during flooding from heavy rains .Can't blame them for that .

That makes sense. Sad but it does make sense. I don't get flooding, when we get heavy rains I get a little runoff in the back part of the yard but no flooding.

Bedford lake and Smith Mountain Lake have had major problems here with fish from flooding or people dumping fish from ponds they don't want .
