This plant is not able to survive the winter outdoors in your area so if you wish to keep it from year to year you will need to grow it as a container plant. It appreciates full sun all summer while it is outside; water as needed to keep the soil evenly moist but not sopping wet; fertilize regularly with a water soluble fertilizer such as 10-10-10 plus minors. Read and follow the label instructions. In the fall, bring it inside before temperatures drop below 50 degrees. Enjoy!
