Pretty plant. Would it grow outdoors too? Or just in the summer then die off?

The leaves and stems are very delicate - I guess if you had a very sheltered spot in the garden you could move the pot there, but the leaves turn brown if they get wet or too much sun. Its really an indoor plant.It flowers all year long.
