Help...I live in Washington state and have an angel trumpet that is potted and a bleeding heart plant that is planted in the ground and I am unsure how to winter them???? Do I cut back the bleeding heart? Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks

Don't know about the angel trumpet, however, don't cut the bleeding heart until spring.. [wayey] [thumb]

I would like to revise my statement about the bleeding heart. They are very resiliant. I have cut mine back a couple of times. They come back with great vigour. So, cut them back now, they will come back in the Spring very well. [teacher] [dunno]

Angel Trumpets are considered a tropical plant. You can put it in a well-heated area over the winter and it might survive. I'm in zone 8/9(right on the border you might say) and I've seen some survive our winter outside and I've seen lots die. Your best bet would be to make sure you have collected some seeds. If you bring it inside please be very careful in regards to children and animals as this plant is highly poisonous.

Hope this helps!

hello!

i too always cut my bleeding heart right down to the ground. and am always graced with its beauty in the spring. as for the angel trumpet vine..i dont have one personally, but on one of the gardens i work on they have a massive one which climbs up their big ponderosa pine. we dont do anything to it except clean up its fallen leaves..and mulch the base..and it seems to continue to be a show stopper all the time. i too collect those beautiful velvety banana type pods..and am planning on starting some of my own.

oops...my mistake!!

when i heard the 'angel trumpet'..i immediatly thought of trumpet vine...but you are refering to Datura..no?

well in that case..yes they do need winter protection..and since it is in a nice pot..this wont be hard to do. mine is soo little, so i have no advice if yours is humungas..

sorry for the mix up.
