Did you get this as a plant or from seed? I started some last year from seed (real easy) and now I'm wondering how long before the first flower.

Wylie and Meanie, I received this as a pass-along. My hubbie ripped a piece out of a patch of Dietes growing in a garden bed at his workplace. I'm amazed the thing survived. It wasn't until the plant was around 2 feet high that it started to bloom.
