Fast growing, almost constantly flowering. It prefers damp soil & plenty of sun. It grows in an odd form as other mention; a semi-prostrate mound, branching at stark angles. In this way it is a bit like a Pyracantha & would probably go well espaliered.

It blooms constantly, but froze to the ground in Orlando this winter. It is not a symetrical, easy to maintain shrub. It grows at very odd angles , throws up an arm 4', then branches at 90 degrees. I call it sculptural.

i bought this plant 1 yr ago, and never took it out of the 1gal container until this yr. planted it up a trellis that i made, and since being in the ground for about 2 months now, it is growing like crazy. i am amazed at how many times it has bloomed. has doubled in size as well. i water it about 2 times a week when i remember to. full sun til about 6pm. glad that i finally took it out of its confines.

A compact and neat plant, but I'm having trouble establishing it in 10b. It seems to need consistent moisture but full sun.

Plant blooms constantly from the time I bought it in spring until winter. It received sun from morning until about 3 pm. Unfortunally it didn't make it through the winter here in North Texas. Protect from frost !!

Makes a self espaliered plant if planted next to a wall and can be kept to only a couple inches thick. Does best in full sun.
