This plant spent its first two years in a small pot next to the entry path to our home. In that place it only ever had a single spike. It was moved from its small pot to the upper level of our Monster raised garden bed in the front yard. This year it developed three flower spikes.

A closer view of the tallest of the three flowering spikes. Because it received more sunlight in its higher position, it displayed more blooms than did the lower spike.
