Rose potato bush

Zone 03868 | janet Verisotosky added on April 11, 2017 | Answered

How can I tell if its died? It is all woody looking but at the base it looks as if it will shed this layer as the woody part appears to be separating??? I live in NH and planted this last summer. Please help!! Thank you! Janet.

This plant will not winter over in your growing zone.
Rose Potato Bush is hardy in warm zones of 10 or higher.

The plant likely died.
