My understanding is that long protracted frost will defoliate the plant and further frost will knock out the growing shoot. The plant will continue in growth next year from the top of the main stem.
Heavier frosts may kill the entire stem but it should regenerate from ground level.
Perhaps with a smaller plant, a bit of fleece could help.

Daz, glad it's growing well for you.
As Don said, I'd wrap some fleece round it to help it through the winter. I'll see if I can take a pic of 'mum' tomorrow, so you can see what you're going to get way baby grows up.

I got my T Rex from carolpz on UKO, She said in the PMs it was an Emporess T Rex. Not quite sure what that means.

Here it is just after planting out in May 2007

And here again in October 2007
