Insulating on exterior of stone foundation #green

Iam in the process of excavating and waterproofing a stone foundation on a century home. I am coating the wall with a rubber sealer, then wrapping foundation with a dimple membrane to grade height. Would there be any benefit to adding rigid styrofoam up to the grade height? The stone wall from grade to first floor is 2 ft 6' .I dont want to cover this portion as I want the stone exposed. The interior stone wall is to be exposed as well. The basement floor has syrofoam insulation under it and has infloor heating. Any advice is appreciated. Iam in the blue climate zone.
