My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant in June 2008 at McCorkles and potted it up to a 3-gallon, planting it in the ground in the front garden in summer 2009. During a short (2 day) vaction that summer the leaves on two branches browned from lack of water. On my return I started watering well again and the plant survived and immediately put out new growth. No problems since then provided the water is consistent.
