My thunderbolt has been in the ground here for 3 seasons now. Still just one pip. The place I purchased it from has a magnificent one in their display gardens, that one has at least 10 pips and I was told it's around 8 years old. They told me that I can expect a big push in size around the 5 year mark.

I think I'm going to dig it and bring it home for safe keeping. It's the most interesting plant in the garden other than 'Praying Hands', but I know PH will do well in sun.
