I planted some seeds earlier this spring and now have a couple of 2 ft plants. Both plants are doing very well, but I was just wondering how long they might take to bloom. My mature plant died this winter due to excessive cold we had on the Texas coast and I am wondering if I will get any seed this year. I planted one in the ground and another in a pot so I can have at least one survivor no matter what old man winter does to us this year. I was lucky enough to gather 20-30 seeds last year, but I keep growing them and giving them to friends. Now I am about out of seeds, so I need at least one of these to make it to maturity so I can gather more.
