Hi Doc,
I got one from Edible LAndscaping in a pot last year. I gave it to a friend who is 
an acupuncturist for her office, but I actually don't know how it is doing. My 
sense is it may have died, but I don't think that is any fault of the nursery. I 
have been very satisfied with ordering from Edible Landscaping in general. Hope 
this helps!
