The move from California to Tennessee brought with it a change in plant selections and gardening techniques. What grows well there frequently does not grow here at all. The most prominent plant diseases and pests in the two locations can also differ quite markedly. Starting over has been a real challenge.

This plant really doesn't like cold. Early December 2017 temperatures in Central Florida dipped to 35º early morning for a couple mornings. No real frost and this plant is protected near a fence a tree canopy. Was the only plant so show any ill effects from the cold. Time to dig up and overwinter in the greenhouse I guess.
