I thought these had to be quite large to flower but 2’ 6” seems to be enough.

Beware of frost. I lost all my twelve plants I have sown in 2012 this winter, when they had to endure just a few degrees of frost somewhere in December.

Thanks for the warning. I'm hoping to have some seed from my plant this year so was thinking about trying a few seedlings unheated over the winter. I'll proceed with caution.

Grew that species from Doug Rowlandseed back in the 90’s. Grew the seedlings for a number of years before parts of my collection got sold for various reasons.

They are very attractive plants, hopefully that plants buds will flower soon, it looks awesome!
