I purchased 3 of these Monrovia brand from Lowes last fall and planted them in some fairly rotted mulch thinking I would put them in permanent homes come spring. None of them survived the unusually mild winter we had. I did go out a few times and water them over the winter because we had hardly no moisture, or snow this year.
