Re: Persian Shield Flower

I don't know actually.  Here in Z5 it is usually grown as an annual and then
pitched; repurchased in spring.  I've grown on from cuttings before, but
never had the cuttings produce flowers.  I don't know if the growth cycle is
totally out of whack on my plants as they've never led a normal life - These
are cuttings from plants grown from the previous years cuttings.  I didn't
note any indication of flowering when I struck them or I would have chosen
other pieces.  I thought someone in our group in the south grows one
outside, maybe Noreen?  Does anyone know?
Those pics showed just the first flower.  If the whole spike decides to
flower, I'll post another pic.
