I am in New Jersey and grow this plant in a container. It is a great looking addition for the patio. I have grown it all summer and it is now about 15 inch tall. I will have to overwinter it indoors.
Update: It came growing through the winter and is now about 2 feet wide and tall. Whereever you trim the stems, it sprouts new ones. Propagate: Take tip of stem or even a piece of stem, let callous over for a couple days (wrapped in moist tissue paper), plant and watch it grow! Incredible plant.

great looking plant. For me, it does better with regular watering, else it starts losing leaves.
