I am ashamed to say that I had this in the “slowpoke” section as it is two years old and hadn’t bloomed yet.
My “slowpoke” section contains mostly NOIDS that don’t require anything except what nature provides. They don’t get watered because they are planted during the rainy season and are not fed after getting a scoop of Milorganite at planting.
To be perfectly honest, this plant had to be a tough cookie to survive. I honestly didn’t expect much from it.
The bloom didn’t suffer from the heat. It didn’t collapse. It looked as fresh as a morning bloom.
The flowers are a good size – not small, but still able to stand the Florida heat.
