QuestionI have a lovely yellow dwarf snapdragon that I planted in the spring.  I have dug it up and put it in a pot of potting soil.  Will it live inside this winter in sunlight?


The snapdragon should overwinter outdoors much better than inside. The larger the container, the better the chances.  Snapdragons are sold as cool season annuals, but I actually have a few that have been living year-round outdoors.
