The truth lies somewhere in between those two opinions. They will take a light freeze in a protected location but it will burn them back a lot and they end up pretty unsightly until they begin to regrow with warming weather. I would suggest in your area that you bring it in for winter or just count on replace it each spring for a fresh and attractive new plant. Most folks consider it more of an annual plant, especially in areas with hard freezes.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
