Overwintering potted creeping jenny

I live in zone 5B & am wondering what is the best way to overwinter potted creeping jenny? (I have a basement, but do not have a garage.) Do I need to keep it in the house under a grow light?

It should be hardy where you are w/o protection. Put it on the north side of the house up against the foundation & mulch a little. Make sure you toss some snow on the container from time to time to keep roots from drying completely if Mother Nature seems attentively lax in that regard.
