In mid May 2012, bought 3 potted Le Belle's from local nursery. They did not have flower buds, just leaves. Since they were outside at nursery, I planted them. I was told to keep them watered, which I did and have been. Now August and they do not look any different from the day I bought them. They are in good soil and get good sun. I have fed them 3 times since buying. They still are just stems with leaves - no buds - and they are not growing much at all.

The plant was one of the last to come up in the garden - I almost pulled it out thinking it was a weed (I had not placed a plant marker near it). Though I had read it only flowers through June and July, the buds kept coming through most of August as well. I just clipped off the spent flowers and new ones kept coming. It is planted in a flowerbed on the east side of my home (1/2 day of sun) in predominately clay soil in zone 6. I look forward to seeing how it performs next year!
