I purchase 3 different Semps last summer, and put them in one long pot until I found something else. Finally got a better pot this spring, but had to give Tederheid his own! He was growing so much faster than the other two that he was taking over. (this is both a positive and negative in my opinion) Gorgeous, vigorous, but good for something larger than a 6" wide pot :) and doesn't play well with others...
