This sedum can handle temps into the low 20 if kept on the dry side. If you live in an area with winter rains you can place it on a covered porch, or under the eves of the house.
It is a combination of being wet and cold that will kill it.

This also makes a nice specimen plant in place of a tree in a miniature garden if kept pruned to the desired size.
