yvette - the flowers are pretty dull. Interesting rather than attractive or exciting
Strangely - this year, one of mine flowered. I have two identical ones - bought at the same time, in the same containers, same conditions etc, but there was no sign of a spike on the other one.
Most of mine are in containers as it's easier to get the conditions right for them. We get lots of rain and they're fine if they're in nice gritty compost/soil. I don't really feed them either. Maybe the odd seaweed feed for the foliage in spring when I tidy them up.
