Sombreuil advice for wintering in Zone 5
Hope you guys can answer a question for me. My mom moved her Sombreuil (climber version) with her when they moved from California to U.P. Michigan (Zone 5). It's gotten over the transplant shock and is growing like mad, however, we're both stumped at what to do for protecting it over the winter. Being California girls, winter to us just means you don't have to worry about watering! :)
They live about 2 blocks from Lake Michigan, the ground is pretty sandy, and it is next to a deck and about 5 feet from the house. This rose originally came from Vintage so it is not grafted.
Thank you all for your help!
