Mine has put on a fair amount of growth this summer. Still not sure if it's large enough to take cuttings from, but if it survives the winter it should be a decent shrub in a year, so I might take a few for you guys. It's reported to root easily.

I reckon the wood is not as frost-sensitive as that of Brugmansias, though the leaves do burn even with the lightest frost.
