I purchased this plant last summer and it flowered non-stop for me on the patio. Since I live in zone 5 Columbus Ohio I brought it inside and placed it in a northern window. It started looking really leggy so I cut off all the leaves, they came back with abundance and looked lush the rest of the winter.I have just placed it back on the patio april 2010 and hope to have it blooming soon
