My Experience: 

I purchased 7 3-gallons from McCorkles in June 2009 and planted them in a row on either side of the driveway near the road in the 'Mail Box Garden' and 'Hide The Hydrant' garden. Have grown slowly, maintaining their mounded shape. A branch of one plant turned brown in the middle of the first summer but I believe I noticed it early and watered it more thoroughly and the plant survived and a year later looks no different from the others.
