This was our first year growing these plants. We grew them from cuttings taken from another plant. I wasn’t even sure they would even bloom the first year. But we gave them plenty of water and fertilizer, and they rewarded us spectacular flowers. This one had so many blossoms that they were touching the ground.
Leo whacked them off and left only a few inches showing above ground. Since we are in zone 8, we left our plants in the ground. But in cooler areas, they must be dug up, placed in a container, and winterized.
