This is actually a cheat. I grew this plant for many years without getting it to flower. Last year I left it out too late and the frost got to it and killed it. During its life it had to put up with many attacks from red spider, but it always recover without flowering. I took this picture from Kew Gardens. The variety I had did not grew so tall and had yellow edges to the bracts. I am really upset with myself for letting it die.
