Positive DreamOfSpring On Feb 26, 2005, DreamOfSpring from Charleston, SC (Zone 9a) wrote:

My plant is only 2 years old. Last year it was just a "twig"; this year it consists of some 8-10 arching branches each 2-3' long. I forgot that I planted it and have ignored it entirely until it started blooming in late summer of 04. Since that time it has been in constant bloom. While it is not the most beautiful plant in my garden, the constant show of white flowers has been much appreciated in the dead of winter when no other plant in my yard dared to bloom(Jan and early Feb 05).
