    Try this link to the RHS.

    You usually get one flower per spike consisting of a good number of coloured spikes to form the familiar shape we see in pictures.

  • ...and how long before it flowers at all?  I have had a plant for nearly three years, bought as a rooted cutting in the supermarket in France, and it is sturdy enough but has not made much growth.  It is in a large tub (as suggested in the growing info) and gets fed spasmodically and is kept indoors.

    Any suggestions?

  • Thanks Edd - by my time of life patience comes naturally!

    I shall look forward to seeing a flower - one day - someday - and continue to ry out anything which seems a bit unusual, to me anyway.
