I'm just now growing this variety, and my 3 plants are budded and one's in bloom. Are these plants evergreen in Vero Beach? Do they tend to bloom all year or just spring till fall? How tall do they get?My understanding is that they are rust-resistant. That's sure a plus.

For me in the west palm area, mine has dropped leaves in winter if it gets in the 40's but leafs out quick, blooms most of the year. No rust problem. It grows tall and narrow. I have let mine grow to about 4' and kept cutting it back each spring to get a "standard" shape. The Breakers hotel in Palm beach has them in their front drive and I'm guessing they are about 12-15' tall.I find it an easy plant to grow, blooms if I fertilize and blooms if I don't, pretty much ignore it and it grows fine.

Thank you so much for the info., Ed. I've taken the first 3 cuttings from these newly rooted plants and in a month or so, I'll be able to add this variety to my line-up. I like the dark green, uniquely shaped leaves and the flowers, even though they are not fragrant.

you're welcome, I'm only speaking from my experience with growing it. I got it as a cutting from a friend and forgot about it for over a year and it was growing.

Things, tropical plants (and certainly weeds), seem to grow well down here, huh? Whistling
