Wow! You have done very well. According to Wikepedia, they are native to Africa, and grow up to 49' tall. They're used sometimes for hedges and living fences. I couldn't find any information on lifespan, but considering that all you have to do to start a new plant is to stick a piece of a cane into the ground, I'd say they're pretty close to immortal.
