I planted these on July 1, and several have bloomed, a few are blooming, and I keep finding new scrapes.
Maryott's plants acclimate better than the ones from Florida and near by states. I have many in pots from LA venders. They will winter in a cool greenhouse until May. That is safer for them.
In October, 2013, I received a very large order to eventually share and sell. This order had 165 double fans, with some more than double. I had the ground ready and I started planting them with alfalfa, and it took me three weeks because I was still working. I mowed, with a grass catcher, an abandoned lot under pine trees to use the needles for coverage. We had a very bad winter, but I did not lose even one plant.
