Summersweet Shrub winter indoors
I have a Summersweet Shrub that was inadvertently cut down to a few inches above ground and placed in a large pot. I thought it was a goner but I kept watering it and it started growing leaves in early August. It seems like it's coming back to life and I'd like to keep it going. Since it's in a pot I was thinking of bringing it inside the house for the winter, in our laundry room next to a south facing window. Would this help the plant or would it be harmful to prevent it from going dormant outside?

This is probably the best course of action, given that the plant was severely pruned. When the weather warms back up for spring it will be safe to put back outside.
