The problem you'll have is heaving, due to frozen ground. If you want, you can dig a temporary hole, plant it pot and all, and mulch heavily. If it is nursery grown and used to being outside, it should be fine. Or, you could treat it as a houseplant...I'm the 'Grim Reaper of Houseplants', so I'm always trying to find an outside solution...if you have good luck with them, then, by all means, bring it in.
