Purchased one this year , Has not done much of anything . Lots of green growth but no flowers. Hopefully it does something in the fall . I planted it to add to my hummingbird garden . If it does begin to bloom and attract hummers as it is said to I will be purchasing more . Perhaps it takes a couple of seasons before it begins to perform.
