I have had this plant growing now for three years. I bring it in for the winter, and it always scares me when it drops most of its leaves. Then spring comes, I move it outside and it returns to all its glory.

Hybrid Thai is beautiful when flowering but after storms this year it has lost leaves. It was planted last Sept. 2003. Very little care other than watering. It seems to be getting leaves but if it continues like that will it be flowering again. I hope. It was beautiful after planting. Hope you will be able to advise me. Thanks.

This plant has been very interesting to grow. I have one red plant with small red flowers and small (3/4-inch) leaves. The tag said it was a milli but all my other milli's have much larger leaves. As for propegation, I put the discarded flowers and dead leaves in the pot around the plant for mulch. For the last 3 years, I have had 3-4 baby "volunteers" come up in January or Febuary. They grow about 3-4 inches a year and none, so far, have bloomed. I am hoping that the pink and cream colored plants will also send up volunteers this winter.

I think this is an iteresting plant - thorny stems have a white sticky juice. The plant I am showing is about 6 years old and very slow growing. I rooted it from a 3" cutting.
