@bpetty55 I think I would have to have another blooming plant to pollinate. I'm not sure though.

@bpetty55 Well, I went ahead and hand pollinated the flowers so we will see what happens. 😁

@KariSamuel This one seems to be a fast grower! It didn't do much over the winter, but the past two weeks it's been growing like a weed.
