They sound terribly small for 4 years old. I grew P. Katrina from a cutting takeb 2 years ago and that is over 6 feet tall already and good and bushy too. Had a few flowers this year and plenty of new growth for flowers next.

To be honest I think they may well be too root constricted in a pot, they do better in the garden where the roots can sprad out.

Thing is, if you sow some this year and then seeds from your bought bulbs next year and so on, eventually you will have bu;lbs coming into flower from your own sowings, every year.

Certainly looks nothing like my C.speciosa buds.

I'm happy to see the rain because ...

What rain? All we have is cloud cover and the forecast looks as if it is going to miss us altogether. Our water butts are empty and even my needle sharp fork will not penetrate the soil.
