First hard freeze here Dennis . That's it for the Bananas and the Thailand Giants and the Castor Bean plants , and the other herbaceous perennials around here .
My Washy is the next least hardy plant . Last year it was zapped at 20F in mid October !? It's looking great right now and hopefully will well into December or after . The magic number seems to be anything above 25F as far as the Washy continuing to look good . I'm pretty sure 25F and below burns it . Maybe a 25F without frost would not burn it ?
