I grow trailing varieties. Its hits -8c where I am and they are on the veranda in hanging baskets so maybe a bit of protection. They die back in the winter but resprout in the spring from seemingly dead stalks. They are weaker in their second year. But they still give a good showing. You can also use them for cuttings in the spring but watch the mildew.
If its colder where you are maybe just cover them with a bit of soil to protect them some more.
The seedlings are SO slow to get going, but they do provide for a continual renewal of plants and yes the F2's are all over the place in terms of colour and form. But they are still lovely plants in hanging baskets.
