There was a warning from the nursery that it is difficult to grow, and they were right: It proved to be difficult to please!
I have it growing in a pot on a sunny balcony and let it overwinter inside, but so far it has only reluctantly made one flower in the second year after purchase.
The plant itself doesn't look happy and hardly got any bigger than it had been the previous year.
