I have 2 Schoene helena- zonal geraniums. They have been outside since I got them in April. They continue to bloom even with the cold, sometimes freezing weather?
Am I doing right? Should I bring them in or will they last all Winter till Spring?
Thanks, Elizabeth

They do not take much below freezing. You could try cutting them off and taking them indoors and try watering them. They might come back, but that cold probably did them in.

I was so happy for them, and then they died:(
