@jeatacake that is weird 😜 even when they lose their leaves there’s still a structure that should be hanging about 🤔 ghostly garden goings on 😱

In two years it will be huge. I have been waiting for flowers to get new pics of mine, but it's grown a lot. Takes a beating too. Our roofers trompled it last year and it doesn't care. Lost a limb but looks good. So have your trimmers ready Kerry! 🌺👌😆💚

@columbiariver sounds like a resilient plant! And yours is still thriving after all that 😯 I’ll be sure to keep it under control 😛 thanks for the advice Laura ☺️

No. I had it in a small pot for too long & it was struggling. It's planted in the ground now so 🤞 it will thrive this year.
