A. physocarpa survives a Minnesota winter?
I left 6 A physocarpa in the ground over winter, expecting to pull them and discard this spring, here in Minnesota.
I brought in a 7th last fall, but it died mid winter...
To my surprise ALL 6 of the outdoor plants are firmly in the ground and they all have color toward the base.
I recently cut each back to about a foot. Has anyone ever had these come back in a colder climate? When do they typically come back?
We are finally having our FIRST warm weather of the year...will be interesting to see if these plants are true winter warriors.
Not ONE of our common milkweed plants are up yet...definitely behind schedule this spring. hope you all are faring better! Tony
