This plant is growing well in zone 10a (Delray Beach) in both sun and partial shade. I have had success in growing plants from cuttings from this plant. Has also taken well to transplanting. I have had the plant for less than year so I don't know anything about its' potential. It was about a foot high when I bought it and it is now over six feet tall. Seems quite hardy.
