I live in zone 7. My Princess flower died when the temps dropped below freezing. I cut it down to 4 or 5 inches above ground. I’ve been waiting for it to come alive. The branches above ground are strong and firmly rooted in dirt.Am I waiting in vain?

Yes, unfortunately. These can only survive down to zone 9. & will be too cold, and will kill it off during the winter. You will have to grow this in container and bring it indoors in the winter.
