#africanbluebasil my #bestof2023 blooms pretty much all year long until we have a freeze. Helps feed bees and all kinds of pollinators #pollinatormagnet

@gjones definitely! Alot of them are annuals. I didn't cover them or do anything special 🤔 I'm thinking is it a fluke? Next year I will expect them to live and they won't! 🤣😂🤣

You're probably right! Your above ground plants might have died off, but the roots are still alive? Or, the seeds were automatically stratified by the freeze & now are growing as this year's annuals? (Does that make sense?)

@kari definitely! But these plants are hybridized the seeds are sterile. The plant is growing back from the roots which is amazing to me!
