Good advice, Judy - it will be much happier outside if it has not
been inside too long - I would not whip it out of a 70F house to a
below freezing outside without some time at an interim, cooler but
above freezing temp so that it can acclimatize itself a bit.

This is one of the species that likes some sun, tho' it will grow
perfectly well in dappled or even medium shade.  That said, I
wouldn't put it in full or late western sun in Texas:-)  Mine
tolerate afternoon sun slanting in on them where they grow at the
edge of a clump of dogwoods surrounding a huge oak, but they are
shaded from direct overhead sun for any length of time.
