I  bought 'Black & Blue'  this spring;couldn't resist and was planning  on 
leaving it in the ground and crossing my fingers.

I don't see why you couldn't leave it in the soil, Marge.  I grow it  here 
and never considered digging it up in the fall.  I don't know anything  about 
its growing tubers, either, but it sure does spread around  everywhere.  I also 
have another S. guaranitica (most likely 'Blue Enigma')  which has been 
happily growing in the ground for about five years now, although  AHS A-Z says it's 
hardy in zones 8-10.  Inasmuch as we're both zone 7 I  wouldn't think you'd 
have a problem.
