Frost Hardy Plants

Frost-tolerant plants will survive a day or two of frost and temperatures down to -5C. They might look a bit frost-bitten afterwards but they'll grow ok. Frost-hardy plants will survive several days of frost and snow, and temperatures down to -10C, and they'll come out looking fine. If you live in Canberra, inland Victoria / New South Wales, or at altitude, try frost hardy plants like these.
