It must be at least 5 years old.  it is in a protected area out front 
near the house.  it dies back every winter, and I'm always surprised to 
see it come back.  This year is really quickly and it about 3 ft tall 
with 2 bloom spikes.  I have no idea how big the root system is on it.  
The soil it is in is very loamy/sandy.  I did fertilize a nearby tree 
alot this year, so maybe that made the difference??
Do you bring yours into the green house in winter?
