I haven't overwintered any plants at all this winter. I do hope this wonderful plant isn't a casualty, last time I saw it it had really died off. I suppose they would but I'm hoping Fuego comes back. I love those sombrero type flowers 🧡🧡♥️

This is a #midwesternnative so unless you have it in standing water or you garden in Antarctica, the plant should be fine...

@charlotte Not good really Charlotte. It looks like mum's leaving us very soon 😢😢 she's been fast asleep for two days except for very briefly opening her eyes. I think my poor sister might get that call in the night she's been dreading 😢😢

It was used in place of snuff when snuff would get scarce back in the 'old days' chris and @charlotte and mine came back last year from being planted the year before Chris

@lilybee Oh no, I bought some Sluggo. Only used it once but it seems to do the job. Very small pellets so, I think they're better than the other bright blue bigger pellets
