|I live in zone 7a which I think covers New York City. They are Peppermint hydrangea if that makes any difference. I have them currently planted in a 26" planter under my open foyer by the front entrance. Will they survive the winter and bloom in the spring? What can I do to ensure they don't freeze in winter short of bringing them in the house? Thanks!|

|They should be fine. The rule is that a potted plant needs to be able to withstand temperatures two zones lower. What I read on line says that Peppermint Hydrangea is hardy to zone 5. With the added protection of the house, it should work. |
The bigger issue may be if they will get enough sun to bloom properly.
BTW, I Googled images of Peppermint Hydrangea. Gorgeous!
