Can you tell me if flowers come first or leaves.I also heard if no flowers first year you will never get them is this true.
Thank you Dantina



welcome to GoY.
from memory leaves first then flowers. its a myth about it never flowering as the plant doesnt flower for at least 5 years when grown from seed. some plants 'sulk' when moved but settle down to flower for many years. I suspect this is what yours did as it flowered for you all be it only the one. May/June is the normal month for flowering.
