Surprisingly resilient hybrid! I grew this plant outside in the ground in the east valley of the Phoenix area and well away from the house for many years until the 2007 frost hit! There were two 3' foot bushes that got knocked to the ground and I figured they were certainly gone for good. Probably a month or two later I noticed buds forming at the base of the stem that I had left in the ground. Over that spring and summer, a few shoots came up from underground! The roots survived!
I'm not going to say this is a plant to go bed out in Colorado, but if you live where hard frosts happen very infrequently, there's a chance this plant will come back if it's been in the ground for a while. It was a very pleasant surprise!

I'm here trying to find out more about this plant, temp, how large it gets. So far, mine has been taking 38* temps. It's nestled between other plants but it's been cold enough for the 'Mother of thousands' to bloom. It propagates easily by leaf on top of the soil. Grows like crazy out in the sandy soil but not so fast in pots. Maybe it does not like the acid in the peatmoss and perlite mix in my pots.
