Sahin's Yellow finally blooms after 15 years

cosmic(Minnesota)April 7, 2010

I got the seeds from Park about 15 years ago. And waited and waited... About 10 years ago I discovered this forum and tried some things to get it to bloom, like putting it in a cool attic and witholding water in winter. It was getting quite large and I was thinking about giving it away. So I put in my East porch instead of the West porch this year. And a few weeks later it finally bloomed!
