Small seedling, about 6 months old, growing in pot filled with dry mixture of soil and sand, couldn't stand our cool/cold winter and succumbed after a cold spell during which the lowest temperature stayed above freezing (around 35F) but there were several days of persistent cold temperatures, above freezing but below 42F. Definitely wanted a warm weather rebound but unfortunately at that time of the year it wouldn't find any.

Two consecutive nights with freezing temps and one day with snow. In detail on 1/9/17 from 0:00 am until 9:00   am constantly below zero with below -1 C from 5:30 am to 8:15 am and absolute min. of - 1.8 C from 6:20 am to 6:45 am. Max temperature same day 5.8 C at 1:10 pm. On 1/10/17 constant subzero from 0:00 am to 3:30 am with an absolute min of -0.5 C around midnight. Asolute max. on same day 7.1 pm at 10:06 pm, but snow remained on leaves from dawn to late afternoon. During cold spell dew point was always remaining below actual temperature.  One plant in pot and another in the ground both with overhead protection (mainly for prevention of snow cover of the leaves). They are doing ok so far with no apparent damage due to cold spell.
