I see this photo is yours , just wondering if you would share info , do you still have it ?
Do you sit it out in the summer? or does it go dormant in the winter ? size pot ? Does it flower for you?

Curious mind

Hi, Cinda.

I didn't bring this plant in last winter, so it's gone. I'm guessing I had it in a three gallon pot, as it was a good-sized plant. Mine did not flower for me, but it was a pretty easy keeper in dry, heated indoor conditions. Growth slowed indoors in lower light, but the plant didn't go entirely dormant.

I find this plant hardy, having come through two snowy winters. A frost will cut it to the ground but it comes up again in the spring. It may be better with some shelter under a canopy of trees in a south facing bed, though I have it in both North facing and South facing beds opposite each other.

Left in the ground and not cut back by the frost, it will make a plant of about eight feet with flower spikes about twelve to fourteen feet from the ground to the top, that is , if it has to reach for the light.

Each flower spike should give up about twenty seeds, though they have little seed capsules that make you think you are going to get a couple of hundred. I don't know if it is because the seeds don't set easily, or because the insects over here don't know what the plant is?

Peter I tip my hat to you.

It's a fabulous plant, mine gets somewhat shaded in the afternoon.
I love your multi-plant image of it with a fabulous mix of plants Peter! How are your seedlings doing?

I must add another photo of the seedlings. I got 21 seedlings from 23 seeds that were four years old. I have distributed 10 already to gardening friends, and have five allocated for a great gardener here called Jimi Blake ( and his sister has a garden near by , she is called June Blake). I have about another 50 or 70 seeds, so I may grow them in spring for the charities and for the garden society.

I was amazed how well they came up.

Many thanks for the acorns, that was great of you.

Kind regards,

Peter I tip my hat to you.
