Not in your zone. Depending on the species they can be winter hardy to zone 6 but you don't have time enough before the first freeze for the roots to become established enough to survive a harsh winter.
You can try keeping it inside, in front of a full sun window, out of drafts this winter and plant it outside after the ground has warmed up next spring.
To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with Spring ----
