Hope you can see this. Will bloom small white flowers in fall.
Tiny white star shaped flowers- flowering now 2.10.2002 in our greenhouse(unheated)
This is my stevia with nothing special done to it from a co-op, planted in May. It is really healthy and beautiful and delicious in tea - just a few leaves and voila! sweetness.

slightly blurry picture showing flower buds
The foliage is in a pretty grey green...thick leaves..
I dried and crushed the leaves into powder by hand and they were delicious. I also dried a couple of the smaller leaves at the top and they turned out pretty bitter.
