Was supposed to be Thunbergia grandiflora, blue bengal clock vine.

Steph: Are the flowers fragrant? The first photo showing the leaves is a bit blurry. Are the leaves thick? My first thought was Stephanotis floribunda, but it could very well be Thunbergia grandiflora alba: http://www.google.com/search?q=Thunbergia+grandiflora+alba&h...

Grumbling I've tried three times to upload more photos and post Grumbling

Going to try one more time...... Here goes........
Thumb of 2011-10-31/StephGTx/9c5445
With my phone for scale

Close up of the leaves

Flower from the backside


My first thought was jasmine and although the flowers have light sent they don't smell like any jasmine that I'm familiar with. The leaves are not thick. I don't think it is the Stephanotis floribunda as the flowers are not quite as tubular as Stephanotis floribunda.

What is the best thing to do when you get something from a trade and it turns out not to be what you traded for? Shrug! Confused

Not that I'm upset, just curious.

You could e-mail and include photo's asking the trader if they meant to send Thunbergia elegans. Or maybe he/she thinks the plant they have is T. grandiflora when in actuality it is T. elegans?
