Overwinter Passion Vine

Zone 7 | littlewren added on October 20, 2012 | Answered

I have a passion flower vine, still in its nursery pot. I was told to leave it in this pot until next spring, prune it back, and then put it under the house to overwinter. I am unsure of the type. It has a dark purple flower. I am in zone 7. Is this the best advice? Should I dig a hole and put it, pot and all in the hole and then mulch? I would prefer not to bring it inside, but could if that is the only option. Please help. Thanks.

These plants will normally die down for winter dormancy, thus, not requiring too much pruning. Here is an article or two on overwintering passion flowers that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/passion-flower/preparing-a-passion-flower-vine-for-winter.htm
