I'm afraid there are too many variables for one list about winterizing perennials. Generally, mulching around the base of the plants, protecting from freezing weather with an insulating wrap and/or storing them in a protected environment will apply to most. You also may need to do a light watering at some point during the winter. If your plants are in pots, they're better off in a garage or basement if you have especially cold winters. Try looking up specifics on our website, and this article may help:
