Will my lovely Black eye Susan survive a Hertfordshire UK winter? It is looking wonderful now Sept 19th I do not want to cut it down, so what can I do to help it survive?

On plant Thunbergia alata



I'm so sorry - but this is an annual climber, and not hardy in the UK. You'll need to start again next spring with fresh seeds, or collect some from your current plant - which may or may not 'come true'.

Just enjoy it until the frosts come. :-/
