When I bought this plant, the gardener told me that it would continue blooming until the end of the year if I would take care of it carefully. It grew very well until late spring. I trimmed when the branches became too long, and they had branches again.
In winter we don't have many kinds of flowers, but stock continuously had beautiful flowers throughout the winter.
