        A bit of a thug and the stems have to be cut down each year and they do not compost. Burn well though.

              Oh, I like that. Can it be grown in a (big) pot?

                yeah be fine in a big pot the bigger the pot the more will grow. its a tough as old boots.
                will die down in winter. so can dry out the stems and use as poles when it gets thick stems.
