My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Nurseries Caroliniana in October 2011 and planted it in the Five Trees Garden. It did not do well and in spring 2012 I moved it to the Hide The Hydrant garden but then decided to plant a row of them in the Turret Front Garden so I moved it again and purchased two more from Nurseries Caroliniana in April 2013.
