They are tough! ALthough I'm in zone 9, I get a few frosts and very light freeze a year,
and even without mulching, they come right back. Mine are now between 4 ft. and 6 ft. tall.
One is even ready to bloom. I'll post a photo when she does.

what I tried, so I just started over. Old user name was 'Pondlily')
I agree, you have a lovely view of the brugs! It will be spring very soon, and you'll be
so busy with the garden
