    Is it ok to keep my younger, smaller S.purpurea outside now?

    I'm in MI, and our temps have been getting down to the 40s, 30s, and 20s lately.
    I know S.purpurea purpurea is an MI native, so obviously the temps aren't that big of a deal for a mature plant--I'm just wondering since mine is immature.

    Same goes for my D.rotiundiflora.

    I'm assuming they're fine,but I figured I'd ask.
    I was leaving them out, but lately I've been bringing them in and keeping them on my sill just to be safe.

    They appear healthy so far--nice and green, no wilting or evidence of damage.

    Also, I have a VFT which I got several months ago, and which is more established, but probably less than a year old. I'm keeping that inside for now...

    I think they'll be fine... it is warming up anyways.

    Are they dormant? I personally have been bringing my plants inside at night when temps go below 35 (daytime temps of 50-60) so they don't go dormant again. If your high is around 30-40 I would leave them inside.

    Yeah, my wife already brought them in so I'll just leave them in until we get more consistent weather...

    Thanks!

    I wanted to share I saw some new growth on my new plantS!

    (But I figured it'd be better not to start a new topic).
