Woooohoooo!!!! I can't wait until mine get that big. I have seen these for years growing in a few places in Oklahoma! But it wasn't until this year that I found out what they were and finally got my hands on 4 of them. I know that they can be invasive, but I really don't care. I have a place that needs to be 'invaded' that is back behind an UGLY cellar. Mine are growing very well and hopefully will have plenty of blooms by next year. Thanks so much for sharing the photo!!!
