Bringing in the black-eyed susan vine

desperationfalls(z5 MA)October 3, 2008

So, our friends in Mexico have this vine up a 12-foot high fence with thousands of orange GORGEOUS flowers.

I planted mine over my stone wall and I have about 20 lovely orange flowers.

BUT, winter is coming and this plant will die.

Can I BRING it in and drape it around my south-facing

window and keep it alive and blooming all winter?

I don't even think that mulching well up here in 5 below

zero Boston would keep it going till next spring.

Yes, you can bring it in - it might not get enough light to bloom, but I came from zone 5b, and took mine in every year and put it out in April.

No, it would not live in your zone, even up against a fireplace wall and with mulch - it is a very tender tropical.
