I have grown four of the popcorn cassia in pots on my patio this summer. They are approximately 5' tall. I live near Toledo, Ohio. I cannot bring them inside. Will they survive planted in the ground next to protection, like my patio cement wall? I hate to just pitch them. Should I take the chance??

Thank you.

It would rather be good if we conserve a forest of this peanut Cassia
