Hi Max,

Glad you have the Ammocharis.  This species seems to be an opportunistic 
grower.  Mine have gone dormant in the heat once this summer and now have a 
fresh flush of leaves -- but no blooms in this weather.  It may grow 
erratically in your climate.  Mine are forced dormant in winter in a chilly 
greenhouse where they are kept very dry.
