Mine is actually in a container outdoors and hasn't dropped its leaves or turned brown at all through much lower temps than listed. It is near the house, but I somehow didn't expect it to survive anyway, since it's small. It gave me a few blooms once late in the season, but I didn't expect much its first year, the big rootball still crammed in a container. The hardiness though is a nice surprise, since I'm in 7a Maryland last time I checked.
