It sounds like it does best in a climate where the rebloom season ends
with a big freeze in November. Also, Kentucky is much wetter than
California, especially during the spring and summer. I think that this
leads to a higher increase rate for this plant. You are correct about it
being from Ohio. Kentucky is more like the climate in which it was
It is probably a good thing I didn't bring it to Florida. It most
likely would have bloomed itself to death: literally.
