For the first time we have an Angel's Trumpet plant, which is yellow. We also have some cuttings from a pink one. Can we leave the plants in the ground over the winter, or do we take it inside? They are all in large containers, have been pruned into the tree shape. We are in Tennessee where our winters get as low as 0 degrees.
Did not realize the plants are poisonous, am learning a lot from your website-thanks.
