I live in South Africa. I planted this shrub/tree in November, it was only about 1ft tall (one little branch). Within 6 months it was over 1.7m tall, I cut it back to 1.5m, but within weeks it shoots way past the 1.7m mark. It has grown into a beautiful shrub/tree, with lots of branches. Very hardy (we had some frost a few weeks ago - it grew better than ever!)
