There is no simple answer to this question, other than it depends on the
weather. I have some lazica (of both species actually) at home now that has
not yet tried to flower, so hopefully will later this month or next. It has
been a long cold winter. In other years this plant, against a south wall,
has started in November, rested over mid winter and then restarted through
until March/April. So here in a mild winter it is a long flowering season,
in a cold winter a short season.

in the future.
