It took a few years, but it bloomed a few times last summer and this year it looks like it will bloom all summer. It is quite happy in a pot and is happiest when it is not forced into dormancy. Instead it overwinters in a sunny corner of the basement as it wouldn’t survive the winter here. It is not, however, a plant that you want to let loose if you live farther south, at least not without thinking about it. Now to get the new red one growing.
But you have to admit, it is rather over the top in its structure!!
