Although this is an evergreen, it is pretty hardy up north and mine has survived a great deal. After the first year, I was really worried I had lost it. The crown seemed squishy and it looked pretty bad, but it bounced back readily and it's doing great now, even after a move and after spending a long, harsh winter in pots.

For hybridizing, it will set pods, but hasn't been crazy about doing so. I imagine it might have something to do with its ploidy. It's listed as a triploid and I wonder if that makes it more finicky. I found that it set a pod every time I pollinated it with Absolute Ripper, but didn't like anything else that first year. Its pollen is good, but can be finicky as well.
