    Roughly how long after the leaves emerge do the flower stalks start to appear?

    I have 2 pots going. One did not lose its leaves and is flowering. The other (smaller) pot lost all of its leaves which started growing at the same time as my first flower that's in the larger pot but it does not have a flower of its own.

    Hard for me to generalize on the U. reniformis 'Big Sister' flower timing. Until this year, I would have said the flower stalks emerged a month or so after the leaves emerged (flowering sometime from June till October). It just seems to happen at random times. However, this year the plant is putting up a flower stalk just as the leaves are beginning to emerge from dormancy. Notice the flower stalk (which so far is over 30 inches tall) is coming from a stolon that emerged from a bottom drain hole. The dead leaves are from last summer.

    Looks like you're using a peaty mix. Right? You probably gave it cold tbs over the winter too?

    Congrats on the flower! Yeah, in my opinion it puts longifolia and other really popular ones to shame.

    I completely agree! .... and someday I hope to see some of these blooms on my own plants! ((as he struggles to keep his jealousy in check))

    Congratulations!
