Hi. I got a butterfly bush; it’s in a pot which is about a foot and a half tall. Can I leave it outdoors in the pot over the winter? Will it survive my zone 6 winter in a pot?

I have found some need winter protection to survive. For example, I wouldn't leave the pot outside unless it was heeled into the ground or wrapped in bubble wrap or burlap. You could leave it in the garage and water occasionally if you don't want to plant it now.
