aloysia virgata and a euphorbia

jeff_alAugust 11, 2005

aloysia virgata - the sweet almond shrub. not familiar with it but saw (smelled!) one at a local garden center yesterday and thought i would like one for the fragrance (very nice, wafting from white flowers at the branch ends).

the tag on the plant gave a zone 9-10 rating but some internet sources say zone 8.

anyone grow it in zone 8, esp. the northern limit, or know if it would be root-hardy in east central alabama(auburn area)?

speaking of hardiness, another plant that caught my eye at this same store is euphorbia 'diamond frost'. the tag gives zone 9 for it, as well.

can anyone comment on it as a zone 8 possibility?

I just bought some and I live in 8a so I guess I'll find out how hardy it is in this zone.
