September 3, 2006 - a sample of eight flowers

Eight flowers opened on the night of September 3rd, including five off a single leaf, four of which can be seen in this picture:




Here are two of those blooms, from a different angle...




Of this unusually productive (for this plant) batch, only one bud remains. It will probably open tonight.

just had to say 'simply gorgeous'. I have the blooms myself waiting to open. I'm in south louisiana and knew nothing about this plant till 3 years ago.

My plant has produced 4 buds 2 of which opened last evening filling the house with their scent. It is the first time I have seen them although a friend in Australia has told me of them previously. I only realised that something was happening when the house started to fill with their extraordinary scent. There are 2 buds remaining which may open this evening. The flowers are snow white. I had no idea it would have such exotic blooms. As I live in London, it is a house plant and usually lives on the kitchen window sill! Many thanks for your excellent site and the info. It is much appreciated.
