      I did have a sanguinea regrow after overwintering in the ground a few years ago.
      But it never flowered that year, really good foliage though.

      I did plant one out a Maya varigata last year, and I mulched it, waiting for new shoots now:smile:

      The last time that this was left out over the winter was 2012/13. It showed no sign of life until July that time.

        A quick question, do Brugs like their roots being hot?

        The reason I ask is when I repotted them last weekend the old compost was very warm, the sun had heated up the black pots. I wonder if they would do any better with the pots sunk into the soil or in the shade?

        Not sure, but I'd say warm but not hot.
        Sun on pots might be good at this time of the year but could be a bit too much in hot weather, (if we get any :snork:)
        Normal soil temperatures in summer seem fine, as they grow really well if planted out.

        I think moisture is really the key in hot weather.
