Hiyer, Don!

What you suggest should work. Keep it cool to warm in your glass house. It should do fine. I grow this species along with A. italicum, A. hygrophilum, A. dioscoridis, and A. sintenesi outdoors year 'round here in Kansas ( I live between Lawrence, Oskaloosa and Tonganoxie). I just keep it under lots of mulch during the winter and it comes up fine in spring.

Good luck!

Any suggestions as to the best way to keep this through the winter? =A0I can keep it in my glasshouse =A0(bright light, for my latitude and relatively cool) or inside in a south window, bright but warmer.
