The plant is doing very well sharing a container with my chenille plant in my shade garden and this past month has carried 2 to 3 blooms.

It is blooming after a long time. Stays more than a week. December last week, 2012.
Since it is in the same pot for a long time, one has grown long and is trailing down and also formed a node mid way.
Seed formation - picture taken after 10 days since the flower started to dry up. Taken Feb 1, 2013.
