Generally, this plant is only hardy to zones 6b, though it has been known to do well in slightly cooler regions. I am not too sure it can take the chilling temps in your climate, however, at least not without adequate protection. If you are looking for a cool-hardy ornamental grass for your region, then this article may have some ideas: http://www.alaskamastergardeners.org/Ornamental_Grasses_in_AK.html
