I originally left negative feedback about this plant as its growth had, seemingly, plateaued. The plant must have heard and gotten upset cause now its amazing! I have it in a large/medium container and the first year it did a whole lot of nothing. At the beginning of year two, it broke almost in half. I had almost given up hope, but kept it happy just in case.

We're on whatever-too-many-to-count days over 100 degrees in central Texas and this thing just keeps spittin' out blooms! They only last a day or two each, but every day is four or five more. And it's about 8 feet tall now in the planter! Doesn't ask for much, just some sun and a bit of water every once in awhile. Looks amazing among the roses!
