I have a couple different ones from way back when and so I had to add these to my collection. I purchase these in 2010 from the local Home Depot in 2010.... They are coming up pretty good.. New little shoots have appeared and it's the first week of June.. I have mine surrounded by cages I make with the vinyl coated garden fencing to help when thelarge flowers arrive. It is a big help.

I planted this in a pot last year. It makes a gorgeous flower, as you can see from the pictures. But mine seemed to have gotten a disease, so I cut it back to about 3 inches. Then winter came and I thought it was dead. But lo and behold, it grew into a beautiful bush again and just had it's first blossom this Spring! Don't give up too soon on those potted, dead-looking plants! Another thing, it really does like to be watered daily in our TX heat, especially this very hot Spring/Summer. Will wilt within one day...
