Question on winter care for Chinese Abelia


Thanks so much for your help. I am from Downingtown PA - zip 19335. I purchased a small Chinese Abelia in early 2007 and have it in a pot since I haven't decided where I want it planted permanently. I am wondering for the winter, if I should bring it in a sunny room in the house, or put it in the garage? I intended to have it planted by now. Any suggestions?


Anne's Response:

It needs to be kept in an area where the roots in the pot will not freeze. It could be buried in the pot in the ground with a thick layer of mulch around the plant or left in a garage. It will not be happy living in the house.
