It's hardy in my zone (I'm barely in the southern part of Zone 6), but I'm jealous, too - haven't had time to start growing any!

Here's a link to the entry in the plants database if you want to read a little more:

Yes they are hardy in zone 6. We grow them and they will spread happily, if you try to move them they will still appear in their original place so now we just leave them be. Its a great one for the wild garden.
