Stevia plant

Zone Sooke BC Canada | Jennifer Swystun added on October 23, 2017 | Answered

I lost last year's to frost. This year I have it wrapped up & under cover, but I don't feel I'm meeting my Stevia Plant's needs. They always seem brittle & never really thrive.

These seem to only be hardy down to zone 8. If you are outside this then it will be common for them to die. You can try to mulch them to help, or even taking a cutting or growing a plant inside. If you kept this plant in container, you would be able to bring it inside during the winter.
