OK, they're common as dirt, but I didn't believe they'd overwinter in the 
ground here.  However, they're leafing out vigorously now, after our typical 
winter with 3 months of snow cover (December-March) followed by an atypical 
April with roughly twice as much rain as usual.  They're planted on the 
south side of an unheated garage, where I assume they picked up some heat 
from the nearby concrete slab, but still - they made it!  Next experiment: 
the open garden.
