    These reach maturity fairly quickly- Within a few years.

    For more information on the care of the shrub, read this article:

    Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the state of your plants. I would go ahead and pot them up. 1 gallon is quite small to house any mature species. They are likely out of room.

    This article will help you to care for them:

    I saw that blog, and she only calls the subject a "weed" because it showed up in her yard without planting it. She gives a nice summation of the plant, with glowing reports. I checked other online articles and didn't see anything disparaging about the plant. So, I would say it is not considered a weed.

    They can stand temperatures down to 5 degrees F (-15 C) so if it got much colder than that for several days, it may have succumbed. You could try cutting it back a bit and see if that encourages any growth but avoid any flower buds you may see.
