cathudog, I have one also, but mine is not as large as it has suffered a few accidents over the years! It was my maternal grandmother's, then it was my Dad's. When he passed away I got it. and yes it blooms when it feels like it, but mostly in the fall. Mine is now covered with buds.

I have been withholding water all of Nov to see if I can get it to flower around Christmas this one got frosted once back in 1976 and lost all but the wood at the base and it came back to what it is today. I transplant about every 10 years or so ago I am going to build a room someday for it but the final place of its residence in the event of my death sometime in the future has yet to be determine
