It depends on the variety you have. Do you know the variety? If you can tell me that, I can give you more infoon winter care. Also, is it in a container or in the ground? Hardy varieties should be able to survive in the ground where you live, but expect that it will likely die back to the ground for the first few years. It will need to be winterized to help it survive. This article will help:
