Hi All,


Last fall I placed one of my Xerophyta retinervis in the ground outdoors here to suffer through a wet East Texas winter. Seeing the plant listed as taking freezing temps I thought I would see for myself. 


Well this spring I could not find any sign of it. I would have to presume that it can only take freezing temps when it is completely desiccated. As it would be in its native environment. 


Any one else have a similar or different experience?


Take care all,
