I grow a lot of these. They bloom all year long, hummers love them, and they are so easy! Only negative I have found is they do get scale though and do have to be pruned hard or they get huge. Oh, snails just love them! I have seen old ones them trained into small trees with fat trunks and they are so cool like this.
