Bring willow sprouts in or leave them out for the winter?

I've got a few weeping willow sticks I put in water a few weeks ago.  They have roots and green growth around an inch long.  Should I pot them up and leave them out for thr winter or bring them inside?

I'd plant them in their final location if possible, to let winter moisture help them develop a root system tied into the water table to survive the next summer. That's in my climate though, where we have mild wet winters and dry summers.

I've got some large dead trees I need to take down first before it (the best start) goes in.  But, the final location is in a low drainage area, so it should get plenty of moisture once it is in.
