Will a Brugmansia Survive a South Carolina Winter?

Zone 8B southeast | blackngoldfan7 added on October 27, 2011 | Answered

I have 2 planted in my yard and I was wondering what steps I can take to keep them from dying in the winter cold. It does not get below 30 degrees for more than a few hours or for more than a few weeks out of the year here but I would rather be safe than sorry.

In your growing zone, it should okay to simply cut the plant back and apply a generous layer of mulch for winter protection.

And when you say simply cut it back do you mean all the way to the ground? Or just past where the leaves are? It is still blooming, our nights are getting cooler but our days are still in the 70's and 80's.
