I have 7 Brugs that I started from cuttings they all have been up potted from 1 gal to 3 gal pots and are probably 1 to 2 ft tall.Being in zone 9a should I leave them in the pots and bring them into my South facing Lanai for winter or should I put them in the ground? Also how big are these babies going to get by the time winter shows up?? Thank You!

I'd put them in the ground i'm not too far from you i just took a chain saw to mine over 12 ft and 4-5 inch stalks cut them down. They get old wood and straggly. They only bloom off new growth. You will love them for sure!! You always want to root back up to have nematodes of other problems you never loose it. Pots you work your self to death watering they are hogs.
