Carolina midnight Loropetalum is winter-hardy in zones 7-10. Many plants that can be grown in zone 7 can also be grown in zone 6 if you provide enough winter protection. However, it may not flower as much and it's possible that it will be damaged.

Placing the plant close to the house or in a sheltered area, providing mulch over the roots in winter, and using some of the other strategies in the following articles may help.
