If danger of a freeze is imminent, cut the stalk of Crimson King and
enjoy it inside.  The stalk and flower will be damaged at 32 degrees and
below.  Even at 32 for a few hours the buds showing color will be
damaged slightly and you won't be able to see it's true form.  Take it
from one who has seen hundreds damaged or turned to mush.
