I have two. One small and one that is larger.  The smaller one bloomed quicker and was pink (very pretty).  The larger one only got a few flowers and then quit.  Mine are in the full sun BUT we have an extremely dry here in south central PA.  I have been watering them but it wasn't in time to save the blooms...just the plant itself.  Definitely move the sunny spot.
