Nice I put one in the ground and kept one in a pot... still excruciatingly slow.... both of them. I am hoping that the one in the ground picks up some speed once it is established.

^ More than just slow. It's never going to get there. Plant in the OP is no more than twice as large now, nine years later.

Yeah that will be a long wait. My regular neomex took a while to settle in, but is now growing reasonably well, still not a speedster, but not glacial...
