First time I've ever tucked a plant in for winter. Sons gave me this lovely not realizing its out of our zone. This frost cloth protects 6-8 degrees for each layer. I doubled it for 12 to 16 added degrees of warmth. We are 5b. Gold Brian is 7 I believe. Have to see how this does. #frostprotection #frostcloth #goldbrian #snugasabuginarug

Yeah, last winter reminded us how cold it can be here. We're directly in the high wind zone of the gorge. Ice comes in too. @ShelleySnyder

Good luck @columbiariver. Hope it does well. Like @ShelleySnyder I had no idea your zone was so different there from ours. Keep warm!! 🌞

Yes Ken. If you get any of our weather on your news during winter, watch for gorge wind and freezing rain...that would be us. Last year being the worst in a long time, took us well below zero. Always interesting, was much more fun when we were young and adventurous @leaskp1

Not familiar with this one but think it's very pretty. Will the little buds in the centre open to be tiny flowers? The foliage is lovely.

Apparently the blooms will look like raspberries @gjones . Fun, yes?

Beautiful colour I do wonder why some plants are given their names 😉

I know what you mean Beverly. Whoever named this must have a loved one named Brian. I tend to think of plants as feminine. Brianna might be better! @errolly

I do too Brianna sounds just right Laura I have a lovely camellia must have been named for the breeder but doesn't go with the flower at all might be just me. 😊
