The roots will freeze if left in a pot above ground. If you cannot plant it in the ground now I'd recommend at least sinking the pot into the soil near the foundation of your home to help insulate it from winter weather. If you don't I'm afraid the shrub can die over the winter months. Wish I had better news for you!
