They did fine last year. This year not as well. We may decide to bring them in if we're going to drop into the 20's for too long. They handled 30 fairly well last year.

Siam Ruby survived my winter last year in Zone 9. Coldest was 25 and it was in a container but I covered it with frost cloth. Remains to be seen whether or not it survived this winter with lows of 26, 21, 20 21 on consecutive nights in the same container but unprotected this year. I'll let you know.

Last winter I lost half the height of my siam ruby pstems. They came back just fine last spring and beautiful all summer. This winter has been far more severe. If it doesn’t make it they are cheap and easy to find.
