Gardeners' Notes:

I bought this plant in 2010 with blooms and planted into my garden. It didn't bloom again until 2012, with three flowers. The blooms started in January and lasted into July. I didn't get any blooms again until this January 2015, I have two flowers again. Planted in good afternoon sun and filtered the rest of the day, it isn't in irrigation, so relies on rain for water, on occasion when we're in a drought some hand watering. I only cover it when we dip below freezing with a frost cloth, when flowers are present. The flowers are a real stand out in the garden. Maybe as time goes on and my plant spreads I'll get blooms more often.
