Re: Ambrosina hardiness

Dear Alice, Matyas and Julius ,

thanks, your comments really help.

I was sort of terrified since we had our first unexpected night with
frost and I already thought my Ambrosinas would not survive it when I
found them covered with hoarfrost in the morning.  I will grow them
frostfree till I have some more tubers.

Your replies indicate that they might even get over our winters in a
well drained sheltered spot.

Happy growing,

I have had this plant in my mostly sunny rock garden for 2 years, and  
it bloomed twice in the same year - the first time in February and  
the second time last November. Our winters have been mild - last year  
never below 10 degrees F, and we are supposedly Z7. A friend grows it  
under more protected conditions in Z6.
