I have it in a large pot, it deserves a better space because it's not too happy and really not very beautiful.

A fast growing plant with it's own special attractions. Not knowing how cold hard it is has caused me to put it in the greenhouse each year. This year I will experiment with a cuttting to see what it can take. I have only seen this plant in three botanical gardens and for sale in one nursery as a cutting. When I first got it I asked if anyone had the plant on Dave's but received no responce. Still do not know how available it is.
