See the small fat root it has developed. I do not know the age of this plant. Last year it sulked and did not make any flowers. I infused biology into the soil this year and it has responded nicely with lush growth and numerous flower buds. Primarily I gave it compost tea with a small amount of worm castings dug into the soil somewhat near the caudex.
