Normally not around here but this year it did because my husband forgot to turn the sprinkler off and it got down to 26 degrees. Looked like a winter wonderland out there. It is already starting to come back though. I have it in shade under an oak tree with dappled sunshine.

Thanks for the information. I have had the dwar kind in a hanging basket and would love to plant your type in the ground. I saw it growing in Maui in containers.
