I took a little bit of a risk with this plant, planting it outside under shelter.. people said it couldn't be done, but amazingly I've pulled it off, not only did it make it through the winter, but it's flowering right now. Only a few flowers, but it's young, and in fairly moist soil. An excellent plant, and quite fast growing in my opinion.. in fact it was often slowly growing through winter in the cool temperatures, believe it or not, although winter was fairly mild. I'll add a photo of mine soon.
