Answers

I could not tell you, as when I received the plant it was dead after being kept in the delivery truck in 100 degree weather for 3 days!

Hi,My zone is 6a, it's good for the plant Or can I keep it in side like indoor plants.

Asked by Sharma July 3, 2020

Answer

Hi Sharma. Thank you for your question. This Low-maintenance shrub grows best in USDA plant zones 7 to 11. You will have to keep the shrub indoors in the winter with temperatures above 40 F if you want it to survive the winter. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

will this plant thrive in zone 6 and survive the winter?

Asked by Ann May 7, 2020

Answers

Hello Ann - this will not survive outdoors in Zone 6 as this is hardy to Zone 8 - 11. You can, however, bring the plant indoors during the winter months and grow as a houseplant. Thank you - National Plant Network

Disappointed
The plant arrived super dry and half dead with no blooms at all. I was really looking forward to it and now I feel very disappointed and sad. If only it had been packaged in a different way to keep the soil moist. Poor plant. I hope it recovers soon!

Arrived in good packing at 8 pm, plant looks good in 2.5qt container, soil is moist, no dry leaves. Potted the next day. New green shoots come after 2nd day. I’m happy with the delivered product and look forward to smell the first fragrant flower.
