My Experience: 

I purchasd this 1-gallon plant at Maple Ridge Nursery in Covington, GA in October 2010 and planted it in the raised perennial bed. It was fine until spring 2012 when it did not green up - only one branch was green, the rest brown. I potted it up and cut the brown out. It died in summer 2012.
