I was sure the person who sent me this said it was American Dream, but it looks like American Heritage so it could have been sold incorrectly named as they often are.

It's been in the ground for a few years now and nothing seems to faze it, it grows to around 7 feet tall and flowers every year with no help from me. It has a heavy sweet scent.

American Dream on the entry here is white with a reddish centre, but on IBS American Heritage has that colouring! Most sites with American Heritage show the same colour as mine with variations.

I'll second that motion. It looks just like American Heritage.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who stays up all hours! I often don't get to bed until 3am or sometimes later, there's too much to keep me awake! Hilarious!
