New plant acquisition...

I'm sorry I haven't had time to enjoy the group more lately.  I do miss all
of you.  I hope you don't mind helping me figure out what I need to do with
a certain plant.

Today I couldn't stand it any longer and after seeing a specific plant for a
couple of weeks, I spent money I didn't have to buy it.  Here is the
problem.  It was sold to me as a perennial (zone 5) but when I tried to get
some culture/zone info on the web, it comes up as an annual or tender
perennial.  I purchased a gallon pot of Trachelium 'Devotion Purple.'  Will
it come back in zone 5?  Should I save seed and try to start it again next
year if it isn't perennial in zone 5?  Should I try to over winter it in the
house?  (O.K., so I know better than to impulse buy, but the flowers are so
beautiful and unique!)

Tony, Dr Buck did his work at ISU.  ISU Reiman Gardens has almost a full 
collection of the roses he developed.  He passed away several years ago but
wife & daughter Mary still live in Ames (home of ISU).  Mary gives talks on
roses.  I have several of his roses which are not only hardy (own root
but disease resistant also.
