    I purchased 5 of these last year, and had hope 4 would live. Well they all are doing fine. Last year (like the book says) they did nothing, not even one new leaf. This year they are growing like weeds, they are weeds ! I have flowers on 2 of them. I am thrilled. Great for the background, beautiful foliage.
    If you have time to let them grow, they are well worth the time.
