New Baptisia Over Wintered in Pot


PattyA added on September 7, 2016 | Answered

My Baptisia just grew from seed this summer in a very large pot. Can I overwinter in my CT zone 5 on my deck where it has been? This is the only place on the property that gets 5 hours of sun or more, so I'm afraid to put it in the ground where it may get at best, 3-4 hrs of sun.

Baptisia is typically winter-hardy in zone 5, so it can overwinter outdoors. Since potted plants are exposed to the cold more than plants in the ground, you may need to cover it for cold protection. These articles will give you ideas for how:
