We have one that has been absolutely neglected for probably a decade - no water, no care whatsoever. It is 35 feet wide and over 20 feet tall, blooming 7 - 8 months a year. This can be a monster in a great spot, but is certainly tough.

What a beauty! I like large ones. Of course it would've an annual in my zone but would be well worth growing if it got even half as large as what has been described!
