CFLs for exterior fixtures?

I bought some CFLs for use on some exterior fixtures and I have tried a few different types with all having the same result... flickering bulbs when the temp gets semi-cold! Is this a known issue with all CFLs? Is there another energy efficient bulb (non incandescent... I am trying to be as green as possible) that would work outdoors?

Re: CFLs for exterior fixtures?

Look for CFLs specifically labeled "cold start."
