    I lost several perennials due to last winter’s highs and lows. Talking with my neighbors not a one said they came through the winter without some perennial loss from grasses to butterfly bushes. We have been spoiled the last few years with mild winters. Makes me rethink the zone pushing that I do with some of my plantings each year.
