Q.Snow in summer plant
Hi, I live in a city near Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. According to USDA plant hardiness zones, Jakarta is 12. From your article “Growing Snow In Summer Plants – Information On The Care Of Snow In Summer Ground Cover” it is said that, Snow in Summer grows well in USDA plant hardiness zones 3-7.
So, i want to ask, even if Jakarta’s in zone 12, can Snow-in-Summer grows well? i want to plant snow-in-summer but I’m afraid that my city (and the weather) is just too hot that it’ll die.
You are correct; Jakarta is too hot for this plant. Even in my zone 5b-6, the plant struggles in summer. It just can't take the heat and leaves become sparse and tan unless watered diligently.
