I ordered a plant from a nursery and planted it under the shade of a large bush in a front garden. The first two years it came up, then disappeared. This year I have 2 but haven’t gotten any flowers. The plants are about 8 inches tall, which is taller than the past two years. Do they establish themselves for a few years or have I planted them in the wrong place? My gardens are irrigated every morning and have mulch. I hope you can help me, as my mother always had them and they remind me of her.
