I like these. Mine is nearly ready to flower. As you say the stems are almost black and the lovely, small yellow blooms form in that nice spike on the top.

I have a pic of it blooming from last season...it seemed to go into a slump in the later part of the season and I was not sure that it would come back this spring...but here it is!! hurrah! The original was greenhouse raised and the leaves where HUGE and the flower stalks were about 3feet 6 inches tall...this plant shows good potential but it is acclimatized...so I'm hoping that there will be no mid summer set back!

I wish you luck with it Lori. It is certainly worth the bother and I find mine very undemanding.
