I live in North Jersey and I bought a beautiful Blue potato bush in June and it's done very well to this point. I am concerned that the upcoming winter could be harsh on the plant.

Unfortunately this plant (Lycianthes rantonnei also called Solanum rantonnetti) is not winter hardy and will need to be brought indoors into a greenhouse or very brightly lit home environment for the winter. With bright enough light it may even bloom year round for you.
