    I look forward to seeing the progress of your seeds. 

    Thye take a long time to grow and even longer to flower but hopefully you will have success eventually.

    I got two seedlings on the ground where seeds fell last year.  No scarification, no special germination, so I think they germinate pretty easily in moist soil.  I just saw them sprout up, so at 4" height, I spaded them up and potted them in a large pot.  I need to get some on the non-sod side of my overhead support to grow up and over to the bigger plant on the opposite end of the support will fill out faster. 

    They grow fast and each seedling is now several feet long.  image I'm certain it will take a couple years for the two to start blooming.  But I'm a patient person for the most part. I don't know how old the original plants are on the right side of the support, but likely 4-5 years old, as the main two trunks are about 1½" in diameter.  My neighbor said their first blooms were the year before we bought the place (July 2016).  So maybe 3 years to blooming state, I would guess.
