    This brug is supposed to have a nice scent, but I couldn't notice any scent at all. They may need to be more mature before the scent is noticeable. The blooms are huge and have a beautiful soft yellow color.

    They don't like to dry out, but mine was planted in the ground in amended clay and required very little supplemental watering, even during a very hot and droughty summer. It was a small cutting that grew fast and bloomed beautifully starting in late summer. Unfortunately, I let it dry out too much over winter, which killed it, so I'll be trying it again with better winter care.

    Finally moved this gifted cutie to a extra large pot back in late spring. After I received lots of good advice regarding feeding, mine has been non-stop blooming since the end of Sept. What beautiful cheery yellow blooms that turn to an orange sherbet color with age. Icing on the cake? Incredible wafting nighttime fragrance: to my nose, a lily-like scent with citrus undertones.
