Winterization

I have a four o clock that my son planted for me at school for mother's day. Of course it grew out of the cup, and I transplanted it into a pot. Well, recently I moved to a house and planted it in the ground, but I don't know much about gardening, and I would like to avoid an angry 7 year old and keep it alive. Will it grow back next year? What do I need to do so the cold months and frost won't kill it?

The common 4 o'clock flower is not hardy in your area. It is usually easiest to save seeds from the plant to start new ones next year. They do also form a tuberous root which can be dug up and stored over winter in a cool (50 degrees F), dry location.
