I've never grown this plant before and got one at a local nursery. The max. zone listed for it is 8 but I'm in zone 10.
Just wondering how it will do in our hot summers.

Hi Mike,

It does well here in Z6a. We have hot summers, many days over 90. I know that's not like you, but still hot, and it does well in full sun. And dry.

Thanks, Polly.
We get PLENTY of 90* plus days here. (Too many, actually.)
How tall does yours grow ?
