I have this plant and keep it in an unheated greenhouse, shaded in the summer months. It was moved from outdoors two years ago,potted up, but did not flower the first year.

Now, in september I have two seperate plants in the same pot, both with several buds and flowers. Next year is eagerly awaited.
