Warm spell, new growth on winter savory

We've had a warm spell here recently and my winter savory started putting out new growth instead of staying dormant. The warm spell is now over, and we're due for a hard freeze over the next few days, will this end up killing my plant since there's new growth showing? Do I need to dig it up and bring it inside. I started a good-sized patch and I'd hate to lose it.

Do you not get several hard freezes throughout winter? If not, I would say just cover it if you can. This way you won't lose what you have in the ground. We get several hard freezes all winter here.

I think it's an evergreen perennial herb that you can eat year round. I wouldn't think it should be putting out new growth this time of year, but I still think it will survive without you doing anything to it.

I would agree that it should be just fine if you just leave it alone. I think it is meant to withstand the bitter cold and freezing temperatures. You will have to let us know how it fares in the weather.
