How much light for winter.

Today I bought a Orange dream to keep in a pot on my front porch. It's about 2 1/2 feet tall. After I bought it I asked about keeping it in a pot and they did not recommend due to the cold weather we can have. I see 2 options one is to find a shady area to plant it or keep in a pot and and move in into my barn for a couple months for the worst part of winter. However in the winter we have very little light in the barn. Just wondering when the trees are dorment is very much light required. Thanks for lighting advice.

Light is not an issue when the plant is dormant. Store in the barn where it will be safe from freezing :-)
