Milky, that's great! Has it been flowering all winter long?

My plant in the front yard is winding down from it's heavy fall and winter flowering.

Meanie:

Most likely your plant needs a lot more sun and light.

Meanie.....are you feeding it Mine gets Tomato Feed, and its only shot up a flower spike since we started getting some sunshine.............Delonix...I wasn't expecting a bloom at all as I divided it last year, so its a bonus.

I guess because it's in a pot it will need to be fed. My plant is in the ground and never receives any feeding. It's a very old plant, though...most likely 30 or possibly 40 years old.

Very small plants here from the nursery tend to bloom during the first year in the ground.
