Oh, now Paul, this is a houseplant I think, but there is a new one on the market which is hardy...I've not tried it, but have been tempted a couple of times!

here it is, but as you can see, it is actually 'frost hardy' not hardy. :(

This is the first time I have ever had them actually bloom. Usually the buds just drop off, so I am beginning to think that this is a new version, definitely a house plant to get us through the next month or two. Trader Joe's...
