Pampas grass--how to store over winter?

I grew a large specimen of non-hardy Pampas grass (Cortaderia
selloana) this year and I need to overwinter it without killing it.
The problem is that I live in Zone 5 where Pampas grass is not hardy.
Does anybody know what I should do with it so I can keep it alive to
bloom next year?  Should I move it indoors and not allow it to go
dormant or should I heavily protect it somewhere outdoors and let it
fo dormant?
