Gardeners' Notes:

I love this plant but it really suffered with our cold winter (low 40's for several days straight) this year. I was so mad. This plant struggled for about 6 months and then finally took. Right before a cold spell I noticed it was FULL of buds so I covered it. After just a couple of days the buds were brown and within a couple more days the plant looked dead. It is just now coming back but only very close to the ground, not on the branches.
