Very cute plant and very strong and hardy too. I planted mine last summer, it survived winter pretty good and put on new leaves nicely and the first tiny buds started developing. I can't wait to see it in bloom for the first time!

Stays truly small where I live, under one foot high after 3 years, and about 3 feet wide.
Nice foliage that lightens up the dark evenings and overcast days!
