I bought this plant at the end spring, it had one stem with several leaves and a few blooms. After a few weeks all the flowers died as they would, and then the plant looked like it might not do anything. I took care of the soil and fed it and it has come back to a bush like plant and is full of beautiful green foliage. It looks like it's getting ready to bloom 10x more than what I had originally bought. Keep it in morning sun for a few hours (not above 75) and then shade for a few hours and then the evening sun comes around 5:30 - 6:00pm (PDT). I'm in zone 9/10. First time buying and hope to keep it going year after year.
