"""Growth Rate: Fast once established which takes the first growing season"" Ours hit the top of an 11' arbor the first year, but suffers from bad pruning (mine.) A second hit the top of an 8' trellis, and then some, in it's first year. It's much happier and is blooming nicely, in its 2nd year, as I write this"
These plants arrived in great condition and look very healthy. I have only had them about a month but they look great! Very excited to see them in bloom.
I ordered three plants a couple of years ago and this is the first year I have gotten prolific blooms. The plants are absolutely beautiful and low maintenance.

CAREFUL PRUNING OF THIS PLANT, RESULTED IN THE PLEASURE OF HAVING IT FLOWER THIS PAST SPRING 2010. IT IS A BEAUTY TO BEHOLD. YES, IT DOES HOLD UP BEING OUTSIDE IN OUR NY WINTERS. I WILL BE MOVING TO RICHMOND AND IT WILL BE GOING WITH US."
"I bought this plant from SpringhillNursery about 6 years ago. The plant has grown tall, but it never bloomed. I have been waiting year after year to see its flowers and so far has not happend. I called nursery and I was told it will take 3 years before the plant start blooming. a kind of disappointment , since I have not seen any results so far!!!"
Ours is 10 years old and just keeps getting more beautiful every year. A terrific plant.
