Wow! What a nice surprise this morning. I went out to the deck, and was immediately struck by a delicious aroma. I never knew before that my NOID Begonia was so fragrant. In fact I didn't know that Begonias were fragrant at all. *Blush* I swear I thought all of their interest was just the beautiful leaves, and 'fairly' attractive flowers.

My fragrant begonia only is perfumed in the morning. By noon the scent is all gone. On cool days it is less fragrant too. Maybe the warming of the day brings out the scent?

I can't seem to find the post about the not Epi hartmannii. What is the real name, Ursula?

Kathy, are we talking about Epiphyllum ackermannii?
We had a conversation about ackermannii versus x Hybridus Ackermannii in this thread
The thread "What's in your Garden February to beginning Oct. 2014" in Orchids forum
look at post 35 and following.

I moved all C&S outside, mostly on to the deck. And yes, there is still room for a lawn chair and a small bistro table with chairs.
Just to give you an idea....

Oh and there is the Passiflora pot too.

Wow, that is one crowded deck! I'll bet they are all happy to be out in the sun and fresh air again.

Nope! Pure red flower on a really prickly plant. You posted it a few days ago. I thought I had a name for it, but when I looked up Sarco hartmannii I discovered that that is an orchid. Confused

good looking Hoya, Mj!
No, the plant is a small Stephanotis floribunda, I am looking forwards to scented blooms on the deck this Summer.
And yes, these plants populated the sunroom upstairs. I always grew C&S, Passifloras and other etceteras, before I got hooked on Orchids and I never stopped those others. I kept some more C&S in our sunny living room window over the winter, those are now on the front steps. Epiphyllums overwintered in the garage and now sit in front of the house too.
What can I say..... Smiling

Wow, and I thought I had a jungle! Just please don't put your bistro chairs near those thorny cacti, ok? Big Grin

When my daughter called me today for Mother's Day, she says it was snowing in Salt Lake again this morning, and is still snowing in Colorado. Rolling my eyes. Hoo boy! I planted tomatoes out in her garden last week. How cold can your C & S take?

Mj, that really is a pretty Hoya. Did you see the link on the Aroids forum for Glass House Works? www.glasshouseworks.com They have a stunning collection of begonias for not too much money. I'm thinking I may need some new ones!

Still snow? Yuck!
Elaine, I would think, pretty much all of these C&S would suffer severe frost damage/ turn to mush
