I need a little help. :)
I just got a little potted plant that looks like a shrub, but i'm not sure if it's ok to plant outside in the garden.
I tried to figure out what it might be, but i still have no idea. It has a brown stem, and brown spots on the white petioles of the leaves. The leaf separates into three leaves.

I live in Romania, hardiness zone is 6, and i'm not sure if it can stand the winter outside or not.

It is some kind of Aralia. I doubt it can handle temps below freezing.
