I just had to share this with you all today. Three years ago my daughter brought this plant home to me for Mother's Day. She had gone to the Acme and there it was so she could not resist. Since then, I have propagated and sold dozens of the starter plants as well as several two year old standards that I raised from cuttings from this and another she brought me last year for Mother's Day.

I now have two large standards that are several years old and five and six feet tall. Plus three 2 year old plants I kept from the group I just sold on eBay. I gave a few away but most of them were sold. This morning I opened the greenhouse and there it was this beautiful fragrant bloom. It is over 4 inches wide and just as perfect as it could be. This is the first bloom and they will continue until August or Sept.
Wonderful plants and such a pleasure to look at. Here it is. ENJOY!
