No, my plants did not bloom last year. And the bloom stalks have not 
formed this year either. I think they have depleted the thin soil where 
I was growing them. I just transplanted them about a week ago to a much 
more fertile garden bed. I made this decision when I visited the nursery 
from which mine came, and theirs were all sending up stalks, about 1 to 
2 feet already. This nursery is far out in the countryside, and fully 
exposed to the weather... so no protection from a greenhouse or anything.
