I bought one of these plants last spring and it grew and grew and grew!!! It gave me some flowers but not as many as I suspected. I don't understand why though. I give it regular deep soakings in summer and the soil is loamy 5cm down and clay for around another 30cm deep. Could this be the problem? I am sure it is the soil and not the plant. This is why I am rating it as neutral. pokerboy.
