Q.Heliotropium Arborescens. I Have Jusy Bought One, But Its Stemmed Up Like A Full Tree.
Is there any diffrence to tending one that is similar of a tree? Every place i have looked into has only showed informations about the seeds you plant yourself, and that it only lasts one year. But i imagine since its like a tree, it will bloom again next year, and the year after that? I live in norway so it can get more chilly than in the states, but i recon if i take it in during winter, and keep it warm and watered it should endure fine? I also hope that you guys could tell if this tree will keep on growing as years pass, like a normal tree? Sorry im not too eduicated on flora yet. Thanks for your time!

It is beautiful! I've never seen one trained as a standard (like a tree) before. It is typically grown as an annual but you can overwinter it indoors to keep it going. It won't get much taller. They get shrubby in their native Peru but in cooler zones it stays much smaller. Here is more on their care:
