Would love to hear what's going on with this plant in your yard, especially if you are in the warmer part of Z8, cooler part of Z9.
Your location/zone?
Is it evergreen, just root-hardy?
How long has it been there?
What exposure?

I ask because I am thinking about leaving this root ball here (taking cuttings of most of the existing stems...)... Obviously the drainage is good, faces south, on the south side of house... I can turn a black pot upside-down over the root ball if cold causes defoliation.

I can't offer anything here since I'm way far south and they live outside here year round but I just had to comment on how pretty that photo is! Lovey dubby

Thank you so much! I've had a blast with this impromptu brick planter thingie. There's no mortar and I wasn't sure if it would stay upright, but it has.

Maybe @Ardesia can help. I think she overwinters hers in the ground in your zone.

Yes, I do, I always take cuttings just like you mentioned - just in case - but they usually live just fine.
