Is it possible to over-winter a bougainvillea standard in PA?

I visited a local garden center yesterday and they had a beautiful bougainvilla trained as a standard, but it was very expensive at $75.00. I passed on buying it, but I keep thinking about this gorgeous standard. I didn't look how it was grown to appear like a short tree/bush (one trunk, about 1" across). Would I be able to over-winter it in my house? It was from Monrovia.

Thank you. Jane
