Scaredy cat plant is only hardy in frost-free areas. If winters are mild, it may come back from the roots if the plant is mulched well before cold weather sets in. So, if you have had a mild winter so far, you might cut it to the ground in spring after the danger of frost has passed, and see if it returns.
