I planted two of these 4 years ago in a couple of "problem spots" in my yard -- narrow beds, one with a wall behind and one along a fence, both in part shade. The plants have a "flat" growth habit that makes them work well in an espaliered setting like this. Mine have done reasonably well and suddenly this year have really heavy loads of large flowers. They are slow growers (at least in my yard), not too demanding water-wise or picky about fertilizer. I give them a dose of ACR food a couple of times a year and they seem to be happy. My only complaint (somewhat alleviated this year) is that many of the flowers face downward so it's hard to see how pretty they really are.
