My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant at McCorkles in September 2007 and potted it up to a 3-gallon until it was planted in the back by the screen porch in summer 2009. It has grown and bloomed reliably each year. In 2010 the blooms were cut short by an early cold spell. I moved the plant to the 'Golf Course Hedge' in September 2011 at which time it was about 4' wide and 2' tall.
