This one is a very slow grower and mine did not grow much in the past year.

2014 - I don't think it's much larger than when I got it.

2015 - Aug. 13. I decided this one was in a spot that was too dark and too dry. So, I potted it and it's done well. Haven't decided on a long-term garden location though.
