5/24/2014 - Planted in new garden. Vigorous. Blackspot prone. 10/20/15- had to re-pot this because it is not heat tolerant enough for my garden. Lots of dieback. 5/2016- Not doing too bad since re-potting, but that's probably because it's not hot yet. 10/10/2016- Ugh, more dieback problems as soon as it got hot out, even though it escapes the worst of the sun. This one may not last in my garden. 1/23/2017- I guess this year I'm going to keep it in its normal spot only till around June, and then move it someplace shadier to see if it can make it through summer without giving up the ghost.
