Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. They aren't reliably hardy in your particular climate; you can give one a try, though, if you have a sheltered spot, such as up against a south- or west-facing wall or building. Or give it extra protection in winter such as a heavy layer of mulch around the base and wrapping it in burlap and filling the burlap with leaves, straw, or another insulating material.
