Acanthus White Water

I live in RI where I believe it to be zone 5. Will this plant survive if I bring it indoors in the fall?

ANSWERS

This plant is hardy in zones 7-10.

You should be able to winter over indoors. It will die back in the late fall or early winter.

That sounds like powdery mildew. You can remedy this with neem oil, rosemary oil, garlic oil, and/or lavender oil. Here is an article for more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/powdery-mildew-homemade-and-organic-remedies.htm
