Way back when — before multiple ice storms, temperatures in the teens and record snowfall — I walked the garden and snapped a few photos. That was on December 6th, 2016, and I was particularly enamored with this vignette, Begonia 'Little Brother Montgomery' is the star — Hakonechloa and the foliage of Lobelia laxiflora play supporting roles. It's the Begonia that I'm concerned with. Many sellers list it as hardy to Zone 10, but I know a few people who say it's hardy to Zone 8. I guess I'm conducting a little hardiness test of my own. It's currently MIA, died back to the ground. Will it return? We shall see...
