Just had a first freeze here. I know they will survive my winters -  just need to know if I can plant in the ground in November and that they will be ok.

November is technically still fall so I would go ahead and plant them. Sometimes it's harder to overwinter a plant than to go ahead and plant them outside. Be sure to keep them watered till established. If a weather forecast calls for really low temps before it is established (in about a month) cover the plant to protect it.
