Liberty is next on my list, yours is lovely. I think I'm also going to go with Paradise Power. Both are named as sun tolerant and I'd like some relatively big, upright/vases for the front of my house which gets afternoon sun.

Interesting, I have seen some that others had labeled as Empress Wu but not this upright.

it is still pretty young only 2 or 3 years old
and the others in the ground bought at same time do seem to spread out a little more
the pot even tho large is seeming to be getting close to root bound

My favorites are:
- Sagae
- Liberty
- Krossa Regal
- Praying Hands
- Hands Up

At one time, I had groupings consisting of 1 each of Sagae, Liberty and Krossa Regal. They looked really nice the first couple of years. And then the deer found them. Angry I've since separated them and moved things around. The Sagae and Krossa Regal are doing well in their new locations. I think I may still have a Liberty, but the deer didn't leave much.

I'll post pics later.
