Melodie,

The plant can take all the cold your area gets and much more. The blooms however may burn if they are open during a freeze, so when it is in bloom cover the plant when a freeze is forecast.

The plant may suffer in the summer heat in your southern area.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
