This plant was given to me as a seedling by my neighbours so I didn’t know what to expect when it was in flower. I knew that they grew tall and that in theory the flowers had a nice perfume in the evening, so I planted them on either side of my kitchen window. I don’t think they have any scent, or at least I can’t detect any. Maybe, as they were grown for the leaves to make Cuban cigars, their fragrance was not considered important and it went by the wayside. Whatever the case, the flowers certainly are lovely and the plants grew tall and strong. Unfortunately the driving, torrential rain we had the other day (leftover from Ida) has beaten them onto the ground and I don’t see any way to restore them. I have a few shorter (slower growing) plants that might now come into bloom, but I am really glad I caught these before the storm. I hope you have a lovely day, my friends and I send a hug to you all. View all posts on the Home page. A Flower a Day #361
