I have several of these planted in my garden and they haven't seemed 
bothered by the light frosts we have. But they are in shady areas of 
the garden and probably have some protection from trees and shrubs 
around them however. And our periods of freezing temperatures don't 
usually last very long or go very low. It doesn't get as cold as it 
would be in Washington. But they have never shown any signs of damage 
when we've had frost that I can remember. I wasn't growing them in 
1990 when we had that really cold spell that killed a lot of things. 
There are photos on the wiki of my plants. The leaves look different 
to me from the ones pictured for identification. These plants seem 
very tolerant of summer drought conditions and wet winters and easy 
to care for. They are in bloom for a long time and have reseeded to 
nearby areas..
