This crazy warm winter weather has confused the plants. They sent up flower stalks and are ready to bloom.

Update:
The weather turned cold again and the flower stalks are black. Dead. I hope the plant will cooperate and send up new flower shoots when Spring arrives.

Huh. I guess the plant is tough to grow in places where it can interpret winter as spring.

I was not able to take photos, sorry. The plants turned completely black from the cold. I do not expect to see blooms this year, but happily now that the weather is warm/hot the plants are doing good.
