Your plant cannot tolerate freezing weather, so you are right - you should bring it in for the winter and put it back out after there's no danger of frost. It may lose a few leaves but it should come back in the spring. This plant likes its soil to be somewhat acidic. You can fertilize it with mulch or bark or other organic materials or use ornamental plant food from your nursery.
