    First year it flowered!

    I live and grow in zone four in Wisconsin… Our summers are very short and so often I use a greenhouse and I start my transplants in March to extend the growing season… I’ve tried this one many years and this is the first year it has flowered! It’s been a hot summer, so I’m guessing that is why. Currently in flower it is well over my head 🙂
