Thanks Martha, we brought them inside in a bucket so we'll see. Doubt it will work without buying a light for them, but wil find out anyways. Worth a try, like you say. They are so expensive when you want a lot of them!

Peggi,
I overwintered mine for a couple of years. I put them in a bucket in the greenhouse.
They were fine but never flowered the same. They had flowers but not as manythe first time, the second time even less so I gave up and bought new ones every year like you do.
It's worth a try even if you are buting new ones anyway.

Happy Hunting

Has anyone out there tried to winter over water hyacinths from a pond? For the past two years i have bought new ones and they are quite costly. I am wondering if there is a way to save them to next year? I am in Pa. and they will freeze if left outside, I brought some in a bucket an din the basement but wondering if this will work? Any ideas?
