I have a Libertia "Taupo sunset" in a large pot on my deck - It was wonderful during last summer and now after the winter I am worried about what to do with it - the top 4" of each leaf has browned off. It is growing still and has loads of lovely flower spikes but almost looks "dead" other wise. Should I have protected it through the winter? Should I have cut off all the dead tops of the leaves earlier in spring?
Any advice on what to do to get it back to the wonderful dark green leaves of last summer!



Hi Chrisandpete, which species do you have, you have only given the varietal name, they range in hardiness from frost tender to borderline hardy, so could have been damaged by frost if you had it outside all winter, having said that if it,s still alive now, then it should eventually recover it,s former glory, Derek.
