My violets lasted through last summer and it gets really hot here. They survived our colder than usual winter as well so they are pretty hardy, here anyway. I have yet to find a buttfly cat on them but some army worms anyway. I'm not sure I'm in the range for those frittelaries. I get the Gulf Frits that like passionflower.
My milkweed is coming up pretty well, now I just need some eggs!!!
