If left free, it is becomes a perennial large shrub up to 4 m tall. It is winter-deciduous in non tropical climates.

It can be grown in pots, but think of pots large enough to allow tuber growth.


What do we ship?

We tipically offer a pack of three thick cuttings, just the right size for rooting easily. But, due to beauraucratic reasons, we will ship one extra-long cutting that you can cut in three pieces. Be prepared to plant them in individual pots of at least 18 cm, filled with good garden soil and place them in full sun, at 18-30 C.  We ship worldwide.
