This is a common houseplant, but i don't know why people here don't use it as a landscape plant. This is one of my two housplant rejects that i planted outside in January and it's already double as tall as when i first planted it. It even saw a night of 28F and many low and mid 30s with little, if any damage (mainly to the tips of the leaves), but it outgrew the damage quickly. It is an a completely exposed location and it looks great. I think the main thing is keeping them dry in the winter and they should do fine. Mine is on a sharp draining slope, you can kind of tell by the picture that it is on a slope. They are rated to zone 9, so my question again, why don't people use them outdoors if you can?
