I have been doing some googling on these and not sure what to do about them. I have two in my border (which I again just threw in randomly). I would like to move them but having read they may not survive winter, is it even worth it?

I do like them and it would be nice to keep them if possible. Can they be potted up and brought indoors over winter or do I just leave them be (without moving them) and hope they get through winter?

Thanks in advance :)

    Not reliably hardy, although may survive in sheltered warm gardens, on the coast.

    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    Ok verdun. I don't have a conservatory or a GH (yet). Would a window sill do?image

    I wish I lived on the coast punk doc. Any chance they would survive in the Midlands? ;)

    No, I don't think so, sorry. They are beautiful though aren't they.

    Didn't think so! They are pretty. I will see if I can salvage something for next year. Got to be worth a try!

  • Hi
    a bit late but I’ve had mine for 2 years and it’s survived both winters.
    it was in a corner between two fences so probably protected.

    i have just moved it tho as it was a bit hidden and was about to flower and now it’s all died.

    how can I Retrieve it? Hopefully it will come back?

    Did you water it well before lifting and after replanting, Debbie? 
    It may have been too much for it to cope with if it was about to flower. Cutting it back would have helped as well because there's less top growth for the roots to support as it tries to establish.
    Is there any sign of new growth at all near the base?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    If you have seeds they are fairly easy to grow and flower the same year. I treat them as annuals. Mr.frothergills sells these seeds if interested.
