The Mona Lavender doesn't like the winter full stop. I have noticed that around this time each year, this Plectranthus struggles. It is semi protected from our veranda, but it seems its not protected enough. The Plectranthus forsteri is doing quite well. Although, this too can be sensitive to frosts unless under-planted, these are dotted around the back yard and haven't been knocked around at all. Plectrantus argentatus is struggling. The foliage looks like they have been sucked dry. I do hope they come back. I think I will have to cut them all back when it warms up a bit. Next winter, I will them back prior to winter, to give them more of a chance.
The other plant which has been struggling is my Fuchsia 'Thalia'. I have had it in a pot other years. Perhaps I should have kept it in a pot.
When I worked in a native nursery, we had a frost section, which would be covered in the wintered days. Some that I remember are Lechenaultia biloba, Eutaxia cuneata and Gastrolobium minus.
