Re: New plant acquisition...


Dan,
I find overwintering a bit of a guessing game.  I always successfully 
overwinter Purple Fountain Grass (Zone9-10) in the attached garage, 
temps down to 45-50.  But Persian Shield is a gamble out there, 
sometimes makes it, sometimes not.  So Persian Shield and Osteospurmum 
overwinter as houseplants.  I prefer to go the garage route because 
cooler seems to coincide with dormancy, slower growth, less likelihood 
of pests than indoors.  Having no greenhouse, cold or warm, I just have 
to take my chances.

Kitty, Z5/6
