I had all of the small plants make it through the winter and they are starting their blooms. They look delicate, but it looks like temperatures don't bother them. I even transplanted and separated them probably in April. They never looked raggedy last summer.

I grow this in my Zone 5 greenhouse, and it does very well. It seems to prefer a well-draining soil in smallish clay pots, in full winter sun.
