Love the rosette of Echium pininana?

Recently experimented with cutting the apical bud to trigger multi rosette growth. I wonder how big the flower stalks will be?DSCN1819

A year later, the Echium is bearing a single flower, smaller than the usual giant flower stalk. The 5 other rosettes don’t show any sign of flowering.DSCN2110
