Meanie:

They are considered ever-blooming. It's a tough plant...although, I think temps below 20ºF/-6 may damage it (from what I've read).

It has gotten close. Fortunately the days that followed those nights have been in the positive temp wise.

That's great! Maybe you plant it in the ground?

If I could rely on winters such as this I would!

Meanie:

So, this winter has been warmer than normal there, also. It's been exceptionally mild in all the U.S., too.

1 Feb, 2012

 

Much warmer than the last two anyway...........

That's great! At least you don't have the severe cold and snow like last year.

We've just had one of the warmest January's on record, temps well above average...and it continues and will continue for the foreseeable future.

I hope this keeps going well over the forthcoming cold weekend ! :o)

Terratoonie:

Hopefully, the cold will pass by quickly!

I agree!!!
