Very hardy..overhere in Netherlands I've seen it growing into a shrub of appr. 150 x 200 cm. Very pretty grey green foliage. Thick leaves..that tend to be folded upwards along the central vein. It is not abundant flowering...flowers come now and then in summer..but it is still very handsome only for its foliage.
