Just like you I have had to cut down on the impulse buying of plants until I have actually planted all the ones I already have in the pipe-line!
The planters are wonderful, put the glazed ceramic type I can afford well in the shade (no pun intended).
The bottom picture of the plant is very pretty, can't quite place it?

Oops My finger hit something on the keyboard before I was ready to send.
I cant vouch for that 20f, that sounds like survive, rather then it can take. You know how that goes with plant ratings. It is native to Mexico.
