I purchased several of your Asparagus densiflorus 'Myers'from a local nursery this spring to include in my outdoor containers. They are magnificent and are doing beautifully. I like them so much I would like to enjoy them indoors this coming winter [This is Minnesota] if possible. Their location indoors for winter would be a bright north facing bay window. I maintain 35-40% house climate control in winter and day temp of 68 and night temp of 58. Would they survive the winter?

Asparagus densiflorus 'Myers' makes a beautiful houseplant, especially in a bright location. If you can provide indirect sunlight, so much the better. Take your plants indoors in early fall, before you turn on your heat. This will make the transition easier for your plants. I take mine in when nighttime temperatures reach 50-55F. Move it gradually, taking it in at night and back outdoors to a shady spot during the day. Keep it in for longer and longer periods of time so that by the end of the week it is spending 24 hours indoors. Enjoy your plants this winter!
