How cold hardy is 'Apple Blossom'?

Today I bought an 'Apple Blossom' Azalea from a local hardware store's garden center for my mom for Mother's Day. It was in the perennial shrubs section with the rhododendrons, etc. I went home to see if I could get some more pics/info on this variety (having never grown azalea before), and I found the website at the bottom of this post.

It states that it is only hardy in zones 7-9. I'm in zone 5! Is this a misprint on the website, or was the azalea display misplaced at the store? Many azaleas do well in my zone, because neighbors have had them growing for years. Does anybody have anymore info or insight on 'Apple Blossom'? If 'Apple Blossom' doesn't work in this zone, what other azaleas or rhododendrons do you recommend for Omaha, Nebraska?
