The Q&A Archives: Aphrodite rose of sharon

Question: Presently I have Aphrodite rose of sharon shrubs plants in large containers on perimeter of patio. Can these be wintered in these
containers or do they need to be planted in the ground.

Answer: The roots of your containerized plants will be subjected to very cold temperatures over the winter months so you'll need to provide some protection. You can bury the pots in the ground over the winter months, or you can wrap insulation around the pots to keep the roots from freezing solid. Best wishes with your plants!
