You would probably have to keep it indoors or in a green house in zone 5.
Mexicans and Texicans use it as a tarragon substitute. We often have
trouble growing French tarragon down here and use the Mex. mint as a
substitute. It has a much stronger flavor. Also makes an excellent tea.
Likes well drained soil and full sun but does well in high shade also.
