yay, I've been waiting all summer for this to bloom. Evidently it likes the cooler weather.

Wow! That's pretty!

It doesn't quite bloom soon enough to grow it here. It's kind of like my Limelight Salvia that's huge and has been in bud for a month now (I think), but hasn't produced a bloom yet. Hilarious! I'm still hoping...but it better hurry up!

At least you are keeping it around. I gave Jennifer one (she's in MI) and she pulled it out! LOL! Taking up too much space with no blooms! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

It did blossom early spring too!

Hilarious! It is huge! I couldn't from my windows see one whole flowerbed until I moved it in its planter to another spot. Rolling on the floor laughing If I'd had it in-ground it would have been gone already.

It looks lovely but I think too much of a wait for northern gardeners. It only blooms in the fall. So if fall is short, not much in blooming time.

I agree, but remember,t is fragrant when brushed up against so that could be enough reason for some. Mine got pretty big though so they do take a lot of real estate.

I am in the I need blooms camp. Don't care if it smells nice if it isn't blooming.

I totally understand. I have lots of room so I can let it go. Plus longer season so it will bloom for me, just late.

Arlene, Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Thumbs up

I've the Golden Delicious variety. No blooms or buds yet.

Chelle, at least you have buds on your Limelight! Thumbs up I'm a warmer zone (but not much) than you and all I have is leaves. I'm not growing it again. This was the first year for me.

I hope we get a very late frost/freeze this year! nodding
