Stevia rabaudiana is a very resistant rustic plant, perennial or semi-perennial depending on the climate where it is grown. In Italy it is possible to grow at any latitude, certainly in colder areas it would be appropriate to take more care of the plant especially in winter when it is advisable to protect the lower part of the plant (that sprout in Spring) with mulches. If in winter the temperture decreases frequently below zero it is advisable to move the plant to a sheltered area, at least until the end of the frosty nights.
