To add insult to injury, in early May of this last year, I discovered a peduncle with tiny buds on the plant after bringing it outside for the year. The temperatures at that time were so cold and erratic that I lost the buds. If I had seen them first, I never would have brought the plant outside until after it had flowered. In hindsight, it may have been a good thing that I discovered that peduncle, which eventually yellowed and fell off. If I had not found it, I probably would have tossed the plant last year and not had a chance to see it flower.
