What are my chances for overwintering this beauty?
Good day all. I'm going to try to insert a picture of my very first passiflora. I think she is a passiflora caerulea however she produced no fruit. This is a first year plant for me at least. I have her on the west side of my house, planted directly next to our chimney,right next to our Summer vegetable garden - hence she will get very good sun all winter long.
My plan is to leave her right where she is all winter. I read one of the suggestions posted here (actually it was the site from the gentleman in England I believe) regarding protecting the roots with some styrofoam to keep the water out and then mulching her with some leaves. My questions:
Do you think I have a snowball's chance in h**l of overwintering here? And..for those of you who feel I should give it the good ole college try...should I prune her back to the ground now or wait until April or May?
Many thanks for your responses.
