This stays outside all year Nelke. The flowers are on the smaller side, about an inch and a half across.
Holantina- I do nothing special for these and they always do well for me. In fact I seperated this one last season and forgot about it for the longest time. It was just sitting around in no dirt, with no water for at least a couple of months. I finally potted it up and it took off. Perhaps my climate is just right for them :)
