I will enjoy yours–cannot beat your content combo!
I planted one about 6 weeks ago, but did not survive. I don’t know what I did wrong.
Did you water regularly after you planted it? It should be given less water through time. Eventually it will root well and become drought tolerant. If you gave lots of water all the time then it could be the reason over watered it.
I have one in my Pyracantha coccinea(burning-thorny shrubs) fence… 🙂
