Only slightly larger. This one is in the garden - might do better permanently in a pot.

I love my Dragon Tails. I have mine directly in the ground, but in a very sheltered spot.

Dragon Tails does fine for me in the ground too. It is a good grower but still stays relatively small. We are starting to run out of them and I'm not sure that Shady Oaks is doing this one any longer. It would be a shame if this one goes out of production.

2014 - still in the ground and doing well. This is a real cutie. Picture from mid-July. It flowered somewhat later.
