Blue Dracaena - overwintering

jersey325October 2, 2008

Hi everyone, We bought 2 Blue Dracaena this year and grew them in large containers by our pool. Well the plants are now about 3 ft x 3 ft approximately..my question is, what am I supposed to do with them during the winter? They are a bit too big to have sitting in our house...any ideas? Do I wrap them up & put them in a garage or do I dig them up? Help! I live in zone 6.

As long as you can keep them form severe frost, they'll be fine. Should be okay containerized in your garage as long as temps stay above freezing. Good luck!

Would it be too much trouble to ask if you could post a photo. I have never seen a BLUE draceana. I am in the same situation with a lotus vine ^lotus berthelotii^(not the water lotus) that is only hardy to 25* F. i think the garage would be a fairly safe bet as long as it stays above freezing but under 45-50* at night. It could break dormancy if it is allowed to warm up too much.
