Mid January Update: this plant came half dead with 3 leaves left 2 years ago. After 2 growing seasons, it produced 1 flower bud in Fall 2020. The bud is extending so should be in full bloom in 2 weeks. The orange colour will intensify after the flower blooms for 1-2 weeks. This is one of the earliest Japanese C. goeringii to bloom. Last picture was the condition of the plant when I received 2 years ago.
