You're not the only one with Immortality woes.  I've read of slowness in it
getting going.  It's one of the runtiest of my second-year plants, maybe
because it sent up a bloom stalk soon after it was planted.  It has another
stalk up this year, but after a freeze last night I'm not sure it will bloom

We're downwinders from the Nevada nuclear test sites, so that might explain
some oddities in blooms here.  I'll post a couple one of these days.

Sanpete County, Utah, zone 4/5
freeze last night wiped out almost all the open blooms, at peak
