How quickly do these tropicals come back from a freeze?
Do any of these come back especially quickly from freezes?
Cape Honeysuckle (Tecomaria)
I live on the 9a-9b border. We usually dip below 32 once or twice every winter here, though sometimes the temps drop into the twenties.
I'm thinking about planting more tropicals in the spring, but I would like to avoid plants that take months and months to come back--or don't come back at all.
I used to grow regular firebush and wild coffee for example, but it took them until May to even start coming back. Because I have such a small garden I just can't afford so much down time.
