sometimes and every once in awhile even those normally "mild" or "protected" areas may NOT escape colder than normal winters which may damage or even kill (usually) hardy plants. the interesting thing is whether after the damage and death have been seen and mourned over will people then go right back to whatever they were planting before in the hope that the next "bad" winter for them will be many years away (if ever) or will they maybe try other things equally interesting, beautiful, and rare but at least possibly better suited to the (hopefully) occasional COLD winter.
