During the winter of 2010 when temps dipped down to 18 degs. my 6 Ft. Brug froze & did not come back from the roots. I had it planted on the West side where it got good drainage. It had beautiful, yellow flowers all summer. I was wise enough to pot up a cutting to overwinter in my greenhouse.
This Cultivar: Ludgers Windsong can be rooted in water. I will do further research to see my Brug's temperature degrees.
Good success in saving plants during this unbearable heat!

I live in Little Italy (downtown San Diego) and my west facing balcony is where my bruggie lives happily in a whisky barrel. It just started its full blooming cycle as of mid-May, and it especially gives off its wonderful fragrance in the early evening. Fantastic!
