growing brugs in ground, sw Florida
I'm a snowbird, living in western PA in summer, SW Florida in winter (inland and south of Sarasota). I have tried rooted brugs cuttings in the ground in Florida. They either are killed by the freezes we've had the last two winters, or never survive over the summer when we're not here to water (no auto watering system).
I brought some more cuttings with me to root and try one more time, Frosty Pink and Charles Grimaldi. Any hints for getting them to grow for me in the ground? Siting--sun, partial shade--or starting with larger plants, etc. Or should I just give up on them here, or grow them in pots here, too. I overwinter my two plants in the basement in PA but was hoping I could grow them in the ground here without lugging pots.
Thanks for any suggestions.
