Outdoor plants /winter

I live in NY and I've had a Bleeding Heart plant hanging all spring and summer , now it's getting down below 50 degrees at night and I wanted to know if I can keep this plant inside all winter by a sunny window and then take it back out when spring approaches.Thank you I'm never sure what plants can survive the change over.

Hi,

Thanks for writing. If you're asking about the traditional old-fashioned perennial bleeding heart (Dicentra), you cannot keep it indoors for the winter. This plant needs the cold.

However, if it's the tropical bleeding heart vine (Clerodendrum), you can move it indoors and grow it as a houseplant. Get tips for that here! http://www.bhg.com/gardening/houseplants/care/tips-for-moving-plants-indoors/
