Very nice, mine is just showing colour, full of buds this year only about 5ft tall though a 12ft one must look fantastic!!!

Does it grow outside for you? How fast does it grow?

I,ve had my oldest one about 7 or 8 years, I have to prune it back every spring after flowering so I can get it in the greenhouse for the winter. I tried one near my south facing wall outside, it survived the winter but got cut back by the frost so never flowered, so I have given up with that!

A good name for a hot plant.

I just read on the internet they don't like freezing temps.

At least you have a nice greenhouse to grow it in. :>)
