    It's only faintly fragrant. There are only 3 people in the whole world who have this, myself, my friend, and my other friend, whose plant was awarded. It's a special plant.

    Very nice bloom Raphael... I'm just curious to know the parent varietal names of your plant (that was used to make the cross), would you know this by any chance?

    Thanks!

    So the story goes that my friend was visiting a well known grower who was going out of business. He purchased this trianae and the following January, it bloomed like crazy. Sensing something special about the plant, my friend wrapped every bloom impeccably and took it in to the local judging centre where every judge passed on it except the last one. Nobody paid attention to the fact it was a trianae. It was then awarded. The end.
