I picked this up at HD in April. It was three single stems together in a pot. I then bought a 12" black pot,replanted in Orchard supply potting soils..just as good as Miracle grow for half the cost. Now here we are in June and the three plants have about 10 more branches developing. I wonder in soucal what the odds are of overwintering ? In Inland souca? I would almost kill to have one of these grow into a big potted shrub. I did see a local florist shop grow them last winter..BUT, I think they brought them indoors at night to an unheated potting shed they have. Still,they took the day cold..and even covered nights here got cold in the dead of December. This is my grand trial.
