It’s a long time to wait for a perennial to flower

Just looked at mine carefully, no flowers forming, but there are side plantlets forming, so given a good watering and a dressing of my special compost.

Kathy, it's a nice architectural plant.
Siris, you'll never guess what, mine seems to have white flowers, Veratrum album, I bought it as nigrum lol, I must take another picture

Oh, yes a picture of the open flowers would be good. The leaves do look the same on these Veratrum, shame that you got sent an album, not the rarer nigrum.

It was from Beth Chatto garden centre, yes annoying, I had a conversation with them following purchase that it arrived in a pot size smaller than advertised, when I know for definite I will message them.
