I have a single one of these and of the four tips/branches, three have inflo. My plant has been in bloom since the end of April and has been outside since mid-March, but I over-wintered it in my solarium because it stayed in bloom until December.

I plan to take some cuttings a bit later in the summer and root those so that I have more plants next year. I love the large, waxy flowers and their fragrance and love the fact that though this plant is now 3 years old, it is only approximately 3' tall. This plant bloomed until early winter last year.
