Here are some photos of the plant over the last 6 months. The first photo was taken yesterday. This plant is completely hardened to grow outdoors in full sun. I grow it in zone 6. The last photo was taken about 6 months ago (to show how vigorous this plant has been). I will add more photos tomorrow or the next day of how it looks now.
This is a 7.5 inch diameter, 7 inch deep pot, with roots coming out the drainage hole
