Yes, it grows super, super fast! When I purchased was fairly new in nurseries and thought to grow slowly. It's pretty hardy and blooms all year, though. Just be aware if you purchase can cause severe dermatitis on your hands (if you touch the plant). I found that out from experience. It causes major blisters which can pop up all over your hands. It's really gross!!!

Thanks! I love the's just a very aggressive-grower.

It was thought to be a slow to moderate grower here in California...nope it grows extremely fast here.
