I'm in Rockville, Maryland. Plant is grown on the back porch in a container, southern location.

Lots of vigorous growth, lots of leaves, lots of black berries which may be seeds, I'll harvest a few. It's a huge plant but I've had to cut it back several times.

NO RED FLOWERS, not even a hint. Bought this plant for the Hummingbirds, no luck. I've fed it with low Nitrogen, high Phosphorous. Season's growing to a close.

I'm like Thalassa Cruso, "non performers gotta go."

Any thoughts, anyone?
