Horrible to weed around, but remarkably cold hardy.

Survived a rough (cold) winter in early 2014 -- not skipping a beat with no foliage damage with a low of 18 F and 36 hours of never getting above freezing.

Best to have it on the drier side of things over the winter, and of course, good soil drainage.
