Anyone here grow this plant in zone 8a/7b? I'm going to try it for the hummingbirds in my small garden this season and wonder when I might expect blooming to begin?

Any advice or suggestions for success with this plant appreciated.

I grew it from a cutting, in part sun, or part shade...
I've had several going, only thing that has killed any of them is summer drought, and... It would be awful hard for you to get it as dry as mine get in the bottomless sugar sand....

Hmmm... Seems that the year after, didn't get blooms til October.
