We have been growing this plant for 18 months at our nursery. The first winter they were exposed to 35 degrees and then defoliated. We thought they were doomed. In the spring all of them woke up and looked beautiful. During the subsequent winter they did not defoliate at 36 degrees but they lacked vibrancy. We also find that they grow best against northwest walls. Still haven't seen them flower at our nursery but we are hopeful! We became interested in growing this plant for foliage which is very striking!
