getting perennials ready for winter

kpw212November 17, 2007

I live in the Binghamton area, and this summer I planted a disco belle hibiscus and an aster frikarti. I'm wondering if these need to be covered with an extra thick mulch layer for the winter or just left alone.

Assuming you are zone 5 in Binghamton, They should be fine and not need any extra mulch, they're pretty hardy.
