Tradescantia ‘Blue and Gold’

I have kept one of these in a pot all summer and it has flowered its socks off. Does anyone know how hardy these plants are? I don’t want to lose it if possible.  I can’t find any reliable advice on the internet. Thanks!

    Tradescantia 'Blue and Gold' can be grown outside in the uk and I would imagine from you location it will be quite happy. You could always take a few cuttings to overwinter indoors just to be on the safe side.

    It is hardy but the slugs can make short work of the young shoots.

    Thank you for the all comments. I can take it out of the greenhouse then!
