Stunning. Hoping to try plants this again this year. Will aim to get more mature plant as lost one over 1st winter & had to cut the remaining one right down. Do you cover over winter?

The plant is not covered but grows in a south facing position of clients house. Needs good free draining soil. If you live up north it may pay to protect for first couple of winters @busybeex4
