My francoa has been in for a year and a half now. It was in flower when I bought it (Sept) but has scarcely grown and produced only one bloom last year. Any idea why?

On plant Francoa sonchifolia



they do take time to settle and they prefer a light shady site. Mine sulked for a year or so and now it is doing really well.

Thank you, that is encouraging. I think it is in a good position, mostly sunny but with late afternoon shade and in good well drained soil. So I will keep hoping. I gave it a good talking to yesterday!
