Should Potted Hydrangea Be Taken Indoors In Winter

Zone NW94EE | Pratik Divekar added on January 21, 2020 | Answered

I got a potted hydrangea this summer that stayed in my balcony till now. With winter now at its peak I am wondering if the hydrangea should be kept indoors. As we can see in the pic there are a few new shoots and I am looking for some guidance if I am actually damaging the plant by bringing it indoors in winter

I don't think you need to bring it in, but if severe weather is forecast you could cover it. Most hydrangeas are hardy to -34 degrees C. You also could keep it in a sheltered area out of the wind.
