we are in so. cal.... Im not sure what temperatures they can tolerate.  You see them alot here.  Downtown San Diego has them lining the streets.  Though residentially they are a real pita lining the streets because the cars then get carpeted.

My deck gets covered like that only with reddish brown fir 'nuts' (I don't know what they are really called, they are soft and crunchy) that my dog tracks all over the house.  I sweep or blow off the deck almost every day...and we still track them everywhere.  That's the pain of having 5 100ft douglas fir trees in your back yard....feels like the woods but OMG PITA to deal with...  Wish it were pretty purple flowers...
