Gina, I think it's pretty hard to gauge anything based on the plant failing to make it through the winter. A lot of it depends on the length of freezing temperatures, size of plant, condition of plant prior to winter (i.e., weak going into winter may lead to rot in spring), etc. The plant Joe gave me has survived winters of 25F-28F well and I'm certain that Joe had his prior to January 2007 when he had about 20F with three very cold days, so I think it's very hardy. Joe gave me the plant in July 2007 when it was already a very large plant so it obviously made it through that winter fine.
