    I have the golden foliage one in a pot, but it's only been there for 2 years.OK so far. I also have a choisya in the ground and it's enourmous, but it's been there a long time.

  • I had a golden foliage philadelphus in a tub for 4-5 years, it was fine, but drunk a lot!  It's now in the ground - I'd never be without one; the scent is just gorgeous.  Choisya is not really hardy enough up here.
