This melianthus made it thru last winter with the protection of the brick wall behind it and some dead plant rubbish on top of its roots. It resprouted and grew back with a vengence, picking up speed in late summer and fall. I got it from Annie's Annuals in California on my visit there a couple of years ago, but I lost the label--could it be M. villosus? I doubt it will ever flower in Chappaqua, since the stems are likely to be killed back each winter, but it does make a fine foliage plant.
