@gjones thanks Katy 😊 it smells heavenly 😋 so strong even with just one flower open 🥰 this is left out all year and is usually perfectly fine. Has struggled a little this year after the awful frosts we had in spring but is now bouncing back 🤍

@gjones are they a plant that can’t tolerate your winters?

No can't survive our winter temperatures. They're about a zone 8 and we're a zone 3/4. They also like humidity and our winters are considered dry.

So you must not get any frost where you live!! Or do you put it in a greenhouse to protect from frost?

@gjones he stays in the garden. It’s quite protected though and south facing so gets as much sun as is possible in the winter 😂 frosts here aren’t usually too bad or too long lasting thankfully 🤞🏼
