I have self sown sweet peas coming up everywhere in the garden, do you think frosts will bowl them? Maybe I don't need to weed them out. (How lazy is that?)
Exkalibur, I get the shivers just hearing about your snow. Thought you may be interested to hear that my sister, after losing their second GSD and saying she couldn't go through that again, has been searching for another one. As I knew she would. A girlfriend up the road bought one recently so I sent her photo's, aren't I wicked? LOL.
Humph. Hazel just got me worried. I knew paint and gangreen were possibilities, but now I've got to consider mould as a possibility.
No. My sweet peas stayed green long after fall frosts. Of somewhere between that and 40 below they did die eventually, but it was a long time.
Good luck with your sister, I bet you'll win. Losing is very hard but emptiness is even harder.
