The first year I planted Rosella plants , that was three years ago The plants took a long time to flower and fruit These plants grew approximately 3.5 meters tall They did fruit ok though These were fertilised only with Searls Dianamiclifter pellets These plants were given to me by a friend . Last year I purchased seeds from CRT at Gordonvale These seeds shot in the pots in three days in good potting mix , they were planted out in about 3 weeks This time I mixed into the soil Sulfate of Potash as well as Dianamiclifter pellets And plenty of water The plants started flowering when 100mm 4 inches high and never stopped This year the same thing I think a lot depends on the Type of seeds and area you are in. Good Luck

Small ones could have been dwarf rosella. I have snow peas growing one grows 4' high the other doesn't start flowering until it is 4-5' high and grows 8"+ high.
