Dear Les;
I guess I didn't state the obvious that I grow it here and have
seen big plants here at the Zone 5/6 border. I am sure it would be winter
hardy in the ground for you in Zone 7 as long as it is not grown wet. I'd
also think it wouldn't much like digging and storing as it emerges fairly

Should be no problem for you outdoors.
