Pelargoniums (zonal geraniums) are still green and blooming, but some neighborhoods have already experienced frost. I moved mine into the attached, frost-free but unheated garage. For most of the winter I don't do anything to them. I might add a little water late winter. I think these are just 2 years old.

I have an unnamed Zantedeschia that I've grown in containers for 25 years. I bring it inside for the winter. It bloomed this year, but not much. Needs re-potting in fresh growth medium. It's in the garage now.
The Brugmansias are kept in the garage overwinter. I try to let them, and the other plants, sit outside in a rain-free location for a few weeks before bringing inside, to start dormancy. That way they don't grow weak useless growth while in storage.
I also brought Epiphyllum oxypetallum to Battleground to keep in sunny cool room. I also kept that in the basement last year without water. It wasn't that healthy looking, but bloomed twice.
The Meyer lemon, Kumquat, and unnamed 15-year-old seed-grown citrus are in cool sunny bedroom window.
That's about all of the overwintering I can handle. If it doesn't freeze tonight, I have an aloe to bring in.
