Q.Best Way To Winter Over A Patio Clematis

Zone Leesburg, VA 20175 | Anonymous added on November 5, 2021 | Answered

I have a compact patio clematis (Olympia). I have transferred it out of a ceramic pot into a plastic post for winter and have mulched the top of the soil. When should I stop watering it? Any guidance on wintering it over so that it will bloom next spring would be appreciated. thank you

You are in zone 6 or 7, and Olympia is hardy to zone 4 so you should be able to keep it outside over winter in your container. (Two hardiness zones buffer for containers) For extra protection, pile some bags of leaves around it and park it close to the house, preferably on the south side.
