My 6' tall potted plant is in bloom now, June 2018. It bloomed for a month in April, then took a break to grow taller, and will do this several times through the year. I have it in a pot so I can bring it closer to my patio back door to enjoy the fragrance I find intoxicating at night. No diseases or bugs seem to bother it except an occasional snail after a rain that makes it up the pot to the leaves until I destroy it.
