Hi! I just bought a yellow trumpet tree in whole food here in NYC. I planted it in a large terracotta container in my outside garden whch gets plenty of light. Do you feel I need to take it indoors in the winter? The winters have been mild these last few years! THX, DALIA

Is this it? If so I don't think it will be likely to survive outdoors even in a very mild (for NYC) winter.

I agree They grow outdoors here, but I'm sure would not survive any temperatures below about 35deg. We do get the occasional light frost, but trees like that go into a funk and do sustain damage when that happens.

You can let it stay outside until the nights are getting chilly, (maybe 40's consistently) but as soon as there is any threat of frost, I'd whisk it inside to a bright, cool window location. It will probably stay dormant most of the winter, and come along nicely each summer when you can put it outside again.
