    Nice Ron-

    I tried 'torturing' my cyms. this year to get them to bloom...left in an unheated sunroom several weeks with some kingianums...gave up and moved them back to the greenhouse...They don't do well in the south, and I'm losing patience...

    This one was left in the greenhouse but got temps down to 55 for a few weeks.

    Hi Catfan,

    We have a cym that will not bloom for us unless we let it almost freeze. We leave it out till late October. We bring it inside just before the first frost and then it blooms like crazy. Let your get a bit cooler. We also grow it outside on the deck under some shade cloth all summer long.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Thanks for the photo -- it looks great. It also looks like you have quite a collection behind it!
