Q.Can Potted Petunias Be Overwintered Outside? I Have Some Still Growing On A Southern Concrete Patio In SC Kansas. It’s Dec. 21.

I was wondering because I am late to cleaning up planters, but if they can be overwintered, I won’t throw them out. But if they can’t be overwintered, I need to dump them out quick – warm today, but cold later in the week. The patio is near the house.

No. They are annuals, and will have to be grown from seed next year. The good news is that it has likely seeded, already. This will mean that you will probably see new plants coming up next year, whether it be in the same container, or near where the container was.
