I over-wintered a 'Sarah's Favorite' & 'Purple Velvet' in my garage. Both are fully leafed out and growing. After I placed them in the garage, the received no water until I brought them outside.
My real surprise was my 'Red Siren'which was in my yard. After the snow melted I had live wood to about a foot above ground. It had no protection. Oddly, that wood then split and died a few weeks later. It is growing back from the ground now.
The Ann & Hope Outlet in Millis has 'Red Siren' and 'Pink Velour' for sale.
