I purchased a 1-gallon plant at Woodlanders in March 2011 and planted it in the front near the Privet Hedge. It was attacked by ants and rotted and fell over but I had managed to take some cuttings which rooted first. I replanted in a different area of the One Of Everything garden in spring 2012 and it grew well through autumn. I had a second cutting that I planted in the Pool Lawn Border in spring 2013. The one in the One Of Everything garden split and lost some large branches in the ice storm in 2014.
