BOP Bloom Cycle per year.....

gardenlady48(z5 IL)June 12, 2013

Quick general question. My BOP bloom for the first time this late winter. Of course I have moved it outside in part sunny location similar to the lighting it had while indoors. When can I expect it to bloom again? It is producing new leaves so far but I'm anxiously awaiting blooms fr the summer.....

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

BOP are native to S Africa where most flowering occurs naturally in the fall and winter when rain is more predictable. You can try to trick them by pushing growth in the spring to try and stimulate bud formation in the summer, but the tendency will always be to bloom when days are shorter.
