mine seems to be doing o.k. in the ground---it is indeed an "afromontane" plant and prefers the cool moist conditions found at higher elevations in the mountains of southern and eastern Africa. summer moisture and at least some afternoon shade probably make the plant grow best---especially in hot and dry interior areas.
the upper southern oregon coast
USDA zone 9a (Sunset zone 5)
