The Q&A Archives: plant zone

Question: I purchased a bush mallow and after reading the label I am concerned if it will last over the winter. On the label it is zoned 6-8. Will it die over the winter or can I protect it?

Answer: Bush mallow is not hardy in your area and won't survive the winter cold. There's really no way to try to protect it over the winter months - it simply won't survive. You can try to collect seeds this year, though, and plant them in your garden next spring. Wish I had a happier ending for your bush mallow!
