It is a second year plant. It did overwinter and has maybe 4 or 5 growth points. But compared to Aloha it is very small. I would definitely pick Aloha over this one. Where Aloha had a major increase in growth points , this is the same as last year and overall is a smaller plant then when I bought it. Also it appears some other yellows will be coming out that you might want to try first. One thing I have to give it though is that it is very fragrant.
