Nhu asked: >Do you grow it in full sun?
I agree, Nhu, a very tough plant that suffered my neglect for several years after which I got serious about its horticulture and now it thrives.  The plant lives in my shade/screen house that's actually an outdoor "room," framed and covered in 1/2-inch hardware cloth that house 12 concrete block planters that are each 25 inches high and filled with a special dirt mix.  So the hardward cloth does provide a bit of shade all year but the entire top and west side are covered all summer with 50% shade cloth.  It's such a rewarding plant, I don't care to risk its exposure to our extreme summer sun.
And I do cover it with frost cloth for any temps below freezing.
As for a species name, not at this time to my knowledge.
