Was given 2 of these from DGer geneivy (so sweet!) and loved them. It was late in the fall so I decided to plant one outside even though I was afraid it wouldn't have time to establish itself, and the other I kept as a house plant. The houseplant is doing very well, it does look a bit scrawny I assume due to it being winter-but is holding in there very well. Very versatile plant!
