Answer: Your research is correct. Duranta is a tender woody perennial and will not survive your winter weather outdoors. Plants like these are generally sold in cold winter regions as colorful summer annuals. You can enjoy it out on your patio or deck this summer but it will die in the winter unless taken indoors. If you have the space and a brightly lit room (or some supplemental gro lights) you can cut the plant back in the fall and keep it inside for the winter.
