I planted this two years ago in a suburb of Houston, and it grew well but didn't bloom year round as described. This year the plants are growing like crazy but the flowers are not fully opening and look deformed. Can anyone give me some idea what might be happening. My other justicia varieties are doing well and blooming beautifully.
