I got this for my little sister, for her birthday. Today, 7/9/20, is the one year anniversary. It is about 8 1/2' tall. Just starting to bloom. And the blooms are beautiful. I am very glad that I bought her the one gallon size. Buying that size is like getting 8-10 years worth of growth, in one year. Her deck sits up about 4' from ground level, so I knew I needed a plant 10'+. I put in 4x4x8 foot with trellis on top of the deck. It has made the 4' (deck height) and the hand rail (36") now we can see a good bit of the plant with blooms. Very Pretty! YES, I would buy this, again. In fact, I am going to buy one for ME! lol....
