Galanthus peshmenii hardiness

In writing this I acknowledge, at least temporarily and for the purposes of
this message, that there could be two different snowdrops.  


Galanthus reginae-olgae does fine outside here, flowering and building up
slowly.  I have several accessions of Galanthus peshmenii that have been in
pots for the past few years because I heard that it might be more tender
than G. r-o.  Is there any basis to this purported lack of hardiness or am I
safe planting them outside?


I also have several pots of Scilla vincentina - it does just fine but I'd
love to get it into the garden.  Is it likely to survive here?  I don't mind
burned leaves as long as it flowers OK.


Many thanks,
