Comments: Hardy only in zones 10 and 11 where it is used as a hedge, specimen, or container plant. Where not hardy, it makes a wonderful flowering plant when grown in containers and can be protected during winter. Reduced light in winter indoors contributes to leaf drop and much reduced flowering. However, the spring, summer and fall flowering make up for it.
