These twins are cuttings taken in 3/2017 from a too-large plant that I gave away. I'm pleased to see blooms so soon, as the parent plant kept me waiting for several years!

I find that divisions seem to bloom more than the parent plant. I think it might be the division is newer plant material?

These look nice and healthy. The flowers are appealing.

That's interesting. I've seen this too, with some Max. tenufolia cuttings that I rooted. In both cases, the cuttings were from the top of the plants, not divisions from the base. So yes, newer plant material. I thought of it as the pieces being more mature, so closer to blooming size, even without the older stalks below.

These youngsters are now putting out second (and third) blooms below the first ones. Very satisfying.
