Mary Sue wrote of Pasithea: It was already starting back into growth. For me this happens from August to September most years. I don't know if it would be dormant longer in a place with a hotter summer. It has bloomed as early as February too. That may be bad news for those of us in areas with severe winters. Mary Sue, does the plant produce foliage above ground in the autumn? Or does it wait until late winter or early spring to produce foliage?
