I took them into the unheated basement.  The information I was given was that 
they shouldn't freeze the crowns, and the pond froze solid enough for skating 
every winter.  Also, by the time I got the Japanese, I knew I would be 
moving, and might not want to leave them there.

I was also planting water lilies at the same time, and some of them were 
tender and couldn't be left over the winter.

This was in western RI - don't know the zone, but I think it would be much 
colder than Long Island, which probably has temps mitigated by the nearby 
water.  We were at least 1/2 hour drive from Naragansett Bay on an interstate 
and at a higher elevation.  We sometimes had snow in Mid October.  My 
rebloomers hardly ever had a chance.  Of course this was in 1972 or 1973, so 
there have been a lot of advances in rebloomers since then.
