I too am having my first flowering of C purpurascens this summer.  Mine are 
fourth year seedlings, growing in a spot that only gets direct sun at 
mid-morning.  They don't actually ever go completely dormant, as long as I 
remember to give them a bit of water occasionally.  I followed the thread of 
advice that said plant them deeply, so that the tubers are between 2 and 3 
inches down.  The fragrance from the flowers is strong and rich, reminiscent of 
lilacs.  I am very pleased!!
