I found this guy at a nursery last month. Cut it back, and did some light root work so it wasn’t pot bound anymore. From the little information I could find, I read that they can be leggy with long internodes and back bud unpredictability, so I kept some extra branches to see how/where it would back bud. It’s been less than a month and this thing has exploded. She’s been a delightful surprise and I can’t wait to see what it’ll become.

Oh goodness. Sorry to hear that. I just put mine in the ground a few days ago. Fingers crossed it does ok threw the hurricane.
It’s still growing strong. But the bugs. Everywhere. All the time. Neem, 3in1, nothing keeps them off.

Mine died in three days from an attack by ninebark borers. I would strongly encourage you to use a granulated systemic insecticide, such as Bonide.
