They are not likely to survive winter and may not come back. Generally, they are treated like annuals in cold climates; however, some people have had luck with overwintering these plants indoors. In ground plants can be dug up and transplanted to a pot. Clip the foliage down to about 3 inches from the top of the pot and stick it in a sunny window in a cool room. Keep it moist, (but not wet) because it can die very easily from drying out. It will revert to green coloration and won't look like much for the winter, but when it goes back outside in the spring, it should come back.
