Baja Fairy Duster - Will it make it in zone 8b?
I'd read about the Baja Fairy Duster and saw a picture of it in Tom Peace's "Sunbelt Gardening." However, I forgot to finish reading the description of it which went to the next page. Basically in the part of the description I missed reading, Tom Peace (also in zone 8b) said he keeps his in a pot and brings it inside because it doesn't like hard freezes. Well, I bought one and planted mine in the ground, and now I read the "rest of the story" about this zone 9 plant.
The plant's tag said it can survive to 15 degrees (but tags aren't always accurate). I have it mulched and can cover it with a blanket every time it freezes. What do you think? Does it have a chance for survival? It rarely gets below 20 degrees most winters here.
