Kolkwitzia, or Beauty bush, should grow well in your gardening region. It grows in Sunset Western Garden Book's zones 1-11 and 14-23 (you're in their zone 11). Summer sun and temperatures can get quite hot in your new environment; if it is still in a container, try giving it some partial afternoon shade this summer to see how it fares before planting it in the garden.

Best wishes with your Beauty bush!
