That’s good, encouraging news, Boyce. 

My plant has been outside for several years and is slowly bulking up. But it
has yet to bloom. It grows near a house wall on the SSW side of the house.
It’s not in a cold frame,  but the site is by nature very sheltered.  This
site does not get full sun during the summer, and that might be one thing
holding my plant back. Perhaps a move out into the sun might help; the plant
seems to be fully winter dormant here, so it would be easy to protect with a
heap of leaves. 

Boyce, how tall is the inflorescence of your plant?
