The flowers are very nice! However, the leaves are really battered by the wind. The leaves looked terrific until the beginning of spring...when we had some storms came in with strong winds.

There's quite a few more flower bracts emerging. :>)

There's several getting ready to bloom right now. The weather has been hot during the day and very warm at night the last 3 days.
