I bought about eight of these in one gallon pots three years ago, put them in the ground and watered during the first few months. After that, I did not water at all. They have weathered the droughts beautifully. I went looking for some more but were unable to get them where I got the first ones but went to another local nursery who told me that they didn't carry them because they weren't zoned for us. I live in zone 7A. They grow in a natural round form, require no supplemental watering or fertilizing and have tripled their size. I highly recommend these lovely shrubs.
