Grows easily. Not anything special except for its foliage. The foliage is really pretty in the spring. A low to the ground rambler that could become a pest without much effort.

Mine did not make it, don't know why. While it is said it can grow as a shrub, I can't imagine it being anything BUT a low to the ground rambler. Not low enough to be a groundcover, but still a rambler. I would not get another one, despite being very fragrant. Hard to find.

Perhaps it would make a nice trailer in a hanging basket. Originally, I rated it negative, but I have revised to neutral for being a novelty (being variegated and fragrant).
