    I was wondering how those in this zone over winter? Do  you cut, cut/mulch, not cut, not cut/mulch or bring inside? Any cultivars not do so well outside that you know of?

     

    Ok just wondering, thanks for any help.

    Hi Yolanda,
    Sorry, I just saw your post! I'm in zone 7b, NC. I cut my angels back to 8 inches, and cover them with a light and airy mulch. Pine straw would be excellent. They will overwinter beautifully this way. Last year I had a few days in winter go down to 16*, and my angels still came back faithfully, even larger and stronger. If you can plant in ground, they will thrive and reward you for years to come!
    Because we're having unseasonably warmer weather,(80's) my brugs are waking up!
    I've been pulling back the mulch to let the sun dry them out a bit and beautiful new green and white shoots are coming off the dead mother stem from last year! The weather is supposed to get cooler in a week, so I will be watchful to cover them up in the chance of a frost. So exciting! By the way, welcome to the Southern Gardeners group!
