In Reply to: Evening primrose in containers? posted by Laura on August 17, 2002 at 04:57:03:
: I live in Zone 5 and am wondering if I can plant my Evening Primrose in a container? How large of a container would I need and would I need to bring it inside during the winter? Thanks for any information.
The size of the containter would depend on the size of the root system. It's hardy to zone 5 so you could just plant it in the ground or put it in a pot and bury the pot up to its rim for the winter.
I don't know if it will survive in the house over the winter. I would think it needs a dormant period of time, but you could give it a try.
