tammyinwv(z6/WV)September 21, 2003

If it can be stored.Do I have to bring it in and treat it as a houseplant till spring again?Or can it be stored like dahlias etc?I plan to try and root cuttings off it to make more for next yr.After new landscaping project done I will have a bed about 8' deep by 80' long to fill in.

You can bring it in for the winter and keep it in a bright window. But I prefer to take cuttings of all of my favorites. They are so easy to grow from cuttings, and much easier to manage in small pots when space is limited.

You can root cuttings in water and then plant them to enjoy all winter and again outside in spring.
