This plant can only survive the winter in gardening zones 9 and warmer, so it won't survive in MN. If you have it growing in a container, you can simply move it inside. If not, you will have to treat it as an annual and plant it again next year. Another option is to take a cutting and grow it over the winter in a pot. Here's how:
