I have 2(2yrs old)planted in separate locations and neither one has ever bloomed. They look healthy and are about 30" high and receive mostly full sun. Are they a little tricky to grow?
One more year with no blooms and I am going to smoke them (I wouldn't inhale)!

Woodenlisten,
Hello, and Welcome to The Garden Helper's Forum!
We are very glad you found us!!!
First off, I'd like you to remember that for perennials the
First Year they sleep
Second Year they creep
Third Year Leap!!!!!!!

And there could be several factors that could effect the blooms????

quote:
Are they a little tricky to grow?
I understand, they do NOT like to be moved, deep tap root that resent being moved.
They are poisionous, and to some the sap can be an irritant if you get it on the skin.

Okay, what kind of soil do you have it planted in?
Water, alot?? None~dry???
Have you fertilized it with anything? If so, What?

Let us know, that'll help us narrow it down a bit!
Thanks!

Weezie
