Pericallis frost damage

Hi,
We bought this pericallis & it has drooped due to a heavy frost. We have brought it indoors. Anything we can do to revive it?
Thanks

    My opinion is that it's had it, they are really sensitive to frost and l think once the damage has been done you can't get it back.
    Happy to be corrected though.

    Thanks AnniD

    Any alternative suggestions for a small flowering shrub?

    Can you give some indication of position (sun/shade) and soil type please ?

    In addition to @AnniD 's question, is it something to keep potted or to go in the ground?

    Full sun. To go in the ground. Lots of garden compost

    Lots of Hebes would be fine. Spireas, although they might get a bit big. Potentillas. 
    Lavender if you like it.  :)
