I planted this from a root piece. It didn't do much the first year. Second year was a little better. Third year it has gone to town. The fragrance is wonderful and the blossoms prolific.

Well I have had this for three years and it has not done much of anything. I have it in a prominent place but the only thing it has done is grown a couple feet a total of five feet total . Hopefully it will do something soon .
