It has survived outside in my garden for the last four winters -
admittedly relatively mild ones, but temps have stayed in the low
teens at night to highs in the low 20s (F) for a couple of weeks
during them. It is in a protected spot at the base of an east facing
bank and autumn leaves pile up there and are left where they fall.
It is very late to emerge - June, I think, just when I've given up on
it. Never has bloomed, but this year, three stems are up in place of
the normally single one. I am in cold zone 7 - USDA map says 6b, but
I don't agree, given some of the plants that winter over for me with
little effort.
