Gardeners' Notes:

Positive poeciliopsis On Jan 21, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- Although very slow growing, this species is tough. I have a 15+ year old specimen in a pot, as well as a year-old specimen in the ground. They get partial summer sun. The pot comes indoors in winter, but the in-ground one was protected in winter only by leaves. So far it has survived 9 consecutive nights of freeze, with a low of 26F. The tall tips were frosted, but the main part is fine.
