- CommentsFlower is scented. Too much shade inhibits flowering. First season, few stems, few inches. Second season, double that of the first year. Third season: Mature growth and blooms. If blooms appear in the first season, remove to conserve energy. Winter dormancy needed. Ants are very attracted to the fragrance of the plant. They will not harm the plant nor are they needed for the blossoms to open. If the plants fail to bloom by their third season, the roots are probably too deep. Transplant in the fall as directed.
