I love my Pearly Gates! Here I have 3 planted on the side of my house and they're about 7 feet tall. I decided to post a photo of them last year (second year of growth) and several photos of them this year (third year). They are sending up canes like mad since they bloomed...one is 9 feet! If they really do take off in their third year of growth I will be thrilled...I'd love to cover at least 3/4 of this 12-ft lattice! Last year they bloomed continuously into October, nothing like the first flush but still always at least a dozen or more lovely blooms at any time to earn its keep. They smell lovely but they receive 6+ hours of hot hot sun where I have them so the blooms only last 3-4 days before they shatter.
