Q.Purple Fountain Grass in Container – Zone 6
How can I make my Purple Fountain Grass and English Ivy survive in pots in the winter? Would love to not have to purchase next year! Thank you. . .
Sorry, I did not note your zone until after I answered. I think they would probably freeze in your garage, right? Temps probably get below 32 degrees. If no basement, I guess you could try growing it as a house plant but don't think it would be very pretty, do you? May have to be treated as an annual.
I am going to put my in our unheated garage but I live in Texas. I will water sparingly = have to admit this is an experiment, however. I have some annual grasses (for this area) that are worth trying to save. I lived in MN and if I was still in a cold region, I would put in the basement. It is best if they have some light, however, (sunlight) to continue to support the leaves.
