Where are you located in zone 8b? I get lots of bunches and fruit every year in my zone 8b with little to no protection. I live on a lake but that shouldn't effect much.

I think that's what matters most. Here in 8b it got down to 20f this winter. Set a 60 year record. The year before last the all winter low was 30f. But it only stays that cold for an hour or 2 just before daybreak. After the sun rises it warms very fast. Depending how long the cold periods were that would make a huge difference. Also how wet the corm and pstem is makes a huge difference. Wetness and cold (even above freezing) can rot them.

Personally on sensitive varieties I have put 3 poles in the ground. Cut leaves off pstem. Wrap pstem with old school non led Christmas lights. Wrap around the poles with pallet wrap. Cover the top with a trash bag and pile hay around the bottom. It will make a 10 layer mini greenhouse around your plant. It will work for short periods of cold. Not sure about long periods.
