I have these two Adeniums; one is a double yellow and the other a triple pink. Both have a sweet/spicy scent. I had two people here yesterday confirm that I was not kidding myself!

The first one is more yellow in real life, the color is a bit washed out.

Hetty, where did you get these?

I have a double white that's fragrant occasionally, at its' whim, but just faintly. I have a Siam Adenium double pink that's doing poorly, hasn't bloomed yet. The three are all doing poorly, I believe the trip was too much for them.

One person in the Yahoo group claims a strongly fragrant plant, I'm going to go steal the plant!!! But she'd someplace in Florida, maybe I can send Jim...

Congrats on those pretty plants, Hetty!

Thanks, Melissa!

I acquired these plants at Florida Colors Nursery, and they import them from a Thai supplier.

These are the times I wish I lived in FL. but too far for me to drive and check them out, I am thinking of getting rid of most of my plants and replace with ONE that smells good.

melissa all of them i got from siam are waking up and all have leafs and 3 have bods the only problem is the tags faded in the sun so it will be a fun to see which is which but i should have 4 of them that hope they smell great!! I am placing a BIG order with them I think they did a great job in shipping only takes 7 days to get here. Just babied them some but have been outside the whole time. mine where planted 5 days before yours thats it. did you soak in m. grow transplanting food and super thrive? I also have rooting hormone that is 45x stronger then the reg hormone i mix with water to give a little boost for them.

My Siam Adenium Adeniums are still struggling, don't know why they aren't happy. Owell. They'll eventually be OK.
