How lovely Amy, no flowers on this one, still quite a young plant, we replaced a very old Melianthus, which had seen better days!! but we have always grown them, one of our favourite plants!! the foliage is such a beautiful colour isn't it? (ʘᴗʘ✿)

I would be happy with leaves like that even if it never flowered.
