I've grown this now for two years. Mine gets quite a bit bigger than whats stated here growing to 26-28 in. Perhaps it's the longer growing season? One in a pot and one in the ground. Both get that big. Easy, forgiving, and really pretty ! I grow it in a morning sun/midday shade/afternoon sun location here.
