I have it sitting in a glass of water and it is blooming indoors. Can I plant it in a barrel and leave outside, or do I need to keep it inside in a container and plant it in the spring? It is currently about 2 feet long. I live in Ocean City, Maryland.

It seems that you are in gardening zone 7b. Albizia is winter hardy in zones 6 and warmer, so you'll be able to plant it outside now if the barrel is large enough. In a small barrel, the roots will be more exposed to cold, so in that case it may need addition protection its first winter.
