do you do anything in particular to your rangoon creeper or your pride of barbados in preparation for fall/winter?

i've always just left them alone in their pot and wondered if they'd make it through the winter
this year i was thinking i would do ???? something????

I pour a whole bag of mulch on my POB. It's made it through the past two winters outside in ground like this.

Stop pushing your planting zone unlike me? Seriously,POB makes a lot of viable seeds and grows quickly. You could always start another one if you're short on space to overwinter or don't feel like hauling it back and forth.
