Annoying this...just replied in detail only to lose my post
i purchased half a dozen this year and all are flowering well or about to.
a few points. The roots are very thick and every plant I received was rootbound. Well, they are vigorous plants. I loosen every root lewving nothing to grow around the rootball. Long roots left dangling and widespread. I soak then for 30 minutes or more then put into pots...in my case 5 litre pots. I soak again and put saucers under those pots And leave for a day or so in the shade. Then move into the sun and water thoroughly again.
after a week or so I plant out and thoroughly soak it again.
ok, knips like hot dry soil but when established. I think water is the critical factor initially
