Looking very nice. I've always admired these in your yard. The starts you gave me last December are now putting out new leaves. Not sure how long it will take them to reach blooming size.

Thanks neighbor!

The ones I gave you should bloom in late summer or fall.

Thanks! The bract should be a lot larger, though. Usually, they're around 20in/51cm long and 12in/31cm wide.
