Sadly this plant has now gone to heaven. It didn't make it through the cold winter even with frost protection and TLC

Did OK in Summer but died in Mid Winter due to cold, not frost but I guess lack of enough warmth for its metabolism. %uFFFDThis is the second one that died, also a seedling I grew from a fruit.
