Does your Osmanthus "throw" its fragrance, or do you need to put your nose into it?

It is as fragrant as Mock Orange. You do not have to put your nose in it at all.

Nyctocereus serpentinus flowers only last one night. One bloomed last night and is done by now. (This is a cactus.)

Beautiful! Does it stay at a reasonable size?
I have an epi called Epiphyllum oxypetalum, she does the same thing.
This one blooms at night, each bloom lasts only one night.
She stays in a pot, but she get's rediculously wide.
Isn't the fragrance intoxicating!

It gets very tall. It is growing up through the lattice porch cover. It's probably 18 inches above the roof. A couple stalks were not tied up and they bow over and put the flower at eye level. Does that make sense?

Wow, that's amazing. I work at a nursery and we have Cereus peruvianus, that bugger sounds a lot like yours. Must be 10 foot tall. Flowers are at about 7 foot. Would never want it to topple. When I was young I cut off a San Pedro Cactus at the base. I suddenly realized that it was falling towards me. I put the big fat saw over the top of my head and it bounced off the saw. Ah youth.

Oh, Oh, Oh, so sorry, I meant that it was blooming along the column of the
plant at about 7 foot high. (Not low enough to the ground to smell it)
Wow, what could possible have a seven foot flower? Voodoo Lily???
Don't stick your nose in that one :)

Ooooh, OK. TYVM! That's disappointing, but realistic I guess. And no, I never want to smell a stinky flower again. Like this one, went to a conservatory to see/smell one once. That was plenty!

Speaking of which, this looks like it will bloom today!

Star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) because I purchased two of them yesterday. Rolling on the floor laughing I had one for several years and I killed it. I have been looking for another one since I lost it over the winter 2 yrs ago. Yesterday I got out of the car and I smelled it, followed the scent. They were only 8.00 a pot so I purchased two of pots. This is great plant to grow in the garden if you live in zone 7 or above.

My Gardenia is blooming again. It bloomed this winter inside and the scent was so strong it gave me a headache. It smells so good outside. I also plant petunias in the pot so that the smell continues after the gardenia stops blooming.

Oooh, speaking of killing things, I lost my Night Blooming Jasmine over the winter. There's a headache I Will miss. Must get another one. Awesome that your Gardenia will bloom for you inside!
My oleander "Peach Blossom" is going crazy and smells scrumptous.
The Philodelphus are finishing up, they are yummy too.
Tiffany, those things are creepy. Having said that I DO have a small one. Blinking
Anybody else out there, what other plants MUST we have in our garden to make it stink pretty???

Right now very little. A month ago our Wisteria vine. Has bloomed every year for the last 6 years we have had it. Had a traveling bee hive in it a few years back. They were gone the next day. Last year a turtle dove's nest. Four babies and i think they all made it. No signs of mayhem just one day all gone.
SO MANY DAYLILYS, SO LITTLE LAND
