I had this plant last year, never put it in the ground, it died. My niece brought some stuff over at the beginning of the summer, yeah, I had this plant again. It almost died before I got it in the ground. Just one scraggly stalk. I planted it and it sat there. One day I noticed new stalks, and they kept coming, 2 and 3 feet away from the original. I started digging out the new shoots after I had a good sized clump. It must be the original stalk that is blooming, I hope they all bloom next year. It smells heavenly.
