Common Lilac in pot - will it survive winter?
I have a 2 ft tall common lilac (Syringa vulgaris) that I planted in a large pot this spring. It's one of those really big decorative (but styrofoamish - I forget what they're called - you know, supposed to look like a concrete urn but are fake) pots. My intention was to plant it in late summer when I got back from a long vacation, but I never did.
Now I'm wondering what to do. Will it survive the winter in this pot? Should I bring it inside? Should I go ahead and plant now? In my previous experience, fall plantings of roses and other shrubs haven't done well here in MN.
What should I do with it at this point? I really don't want it to die. Thanks!
