I think I can safely say 'Well done' - and do please join us. It doesn't cost anything, and I'd like to know more about your cuttings.

As you have found, it is actually a frost tender perennial. As long as you keep it from freezing, it will keep growing, especially starting fresh from cuttings. In parts of southern California, they are experimenting with it as a small-scale groundcover. Here in the subtropical desert, we use it as a winter annual, because it can take a very light frost, and it's not happy with our extreme summer heat.
