I have had one of these for over 25 years and it is still going strong! It has a thick trunk now with the most unusual bark. The hummingbirds just love it, because it gets SO big. I could swear they fight over it and the Lycioides nearby. I have even been experimenting with it as a clipped hedge and plan to try and see how it would do as a bonsai. I think the combination of the interesting bark, and the tiny little "dancing fairies" as my niece calls them, would make a good bonsai specimen.
