    Zach,

    My plants tried to go dormant this winter. Several did form hibernacula, not as tight as the typical but they were there. The plants stopped growing and the outer lamina withered leaving a core of partially unfurled leaves. Others continued to grow through the winter, but started to try to go dormant middle spring when they should have been bursting into growth. The ones that ceased growth over the winter are thriving, and are reddening up well, although its hard to see the lamina for the number of insects! The ones that grew over the winter still have not fully expanded. So, yes, it is a mysterious plant. This winter I will encourage them to go as dormant as possible, and I am curious to see if their vigor has improved come next spring if I can survive yet another Oswego winter.

    Oswego is about 5 miles from Pluto, about 2 hours from the frozen depths of Hades.
