I have owned an asparagus fern for 6 years. Each fal lI bring it indoors, where it significantly dies back. In the spring, I put it back out side where it gets new growth.

My question is whether or not I can leave the fern outdoors during winter. I know this plant is considered a perennial for southern zones, but was wondering of it would survive a winter in zone 6.
