May Night-Evergreen in 8b/9?

Posted by pricklypearsatx z8b (My Page) on

I live in San Antonio and we don't have much of a winter.

So, when I plan my beds etc., it is very helpful to know if a plant is evergreen during our winters.

We generally get light frost and that's about it. We will get occassional freezes, with temps in the 20's

I also have East Friesland.

I am using them as groundcover under my roses.

So I'm wondering if these are evergreen in zone 8/9?

Thank you

I lived in SA for a few years and the winters are about the same as where I am now. My May Night's are mostly evergreen but they are not attractive during the winter. Looks more like a weed and lies flat on the ground.

That's OK. It'll do.

Alot things look a little "off" in the winter. Thanks for the info.
