I'm a new member, thanks to Chris. I'll post an introduction in the intro thread shortly, but you should know I'm in Australia, so it's the middle of winter here now. I'm somwehat surprised that a couple of my tiny 2 year old M. sanchez-mejoradae plants have flowered in the middle of winter. I know M. plumosa as a late autumn/early winter flowerer, but it's never flowered this late into winter.
Does sanchez-mejoradae behave the same in the northern hemisphere ?
