It is too early to comment about the blooms but do want to state that when the plants arrived I was impressed. The plants (2) were 12+ inches tall (not including the pot), beautifully dark leaves and very healthy. I would be thrilled to see blooms this year but I had not ordered the "Shooting Star" plants until mid-July. Even though they are in a sheltered area, this and next month can be rather hot here in Texas so a year to get well established will be fine. Since the plants were very healthy if it takes until next year to see the blooms I'll be satisfied.
