I watched as these bloomed beautifully in the nursery and then, when three of them wilted, decided to bring all three home for a little TLC. One I have re-potted with its cut stems at least two inches below the soil level. It has taken a few weeks, but it is now about a foot tall and looking very, very nice. I will probably leave it in the pot for the winter and plant it in ground in the spring. The other two I planted deeply, in ground, for friends. These two are also recovering very well. I don't expect that any of the three will bloom again this year, but I am looking forward to seeing how they all do next spring.
