I'm still catching up and sorting through photos at the moment and I realised that I hadn't posted this one yet. A first bloom for me on this little one. The flowers lasted a lot longer than I thought but the scent wasn't anywhere near as strong as I thought it would be (but it did get stronger after the flowers had been open a week or so)
Beautiful flowers. They are my choice of all the other colors.
I have noticed that relative humidity plays a big role in
the scent along with time of day. Flowers that are pollinated at night are more aromatic at night i.e. B. nodosa and scents are less in a heavy humid area. I have a gardenia bush in the landscape that emits no scent as you walk by but cut flowers and bring them indoors with the air conditioning running and they have a powerfully potent scent that fills the room.
