    I bought this in spike last summer, but this year I rebloomed it!!! I'm generally not very good at reblooming catts, so I'm pretty excited.

    Yew, please post pictures of the different varieties if you have them. I'm just loving this plant- it fills up my kitchen with this incredible smell of cloves every morning. My coffee just tastes beter in the morning because of it.

    Sorry Gita, I don't have any leopoldii.It is easier to get hybrids than species here . That is why I have been trying for years to get them- any variety at all, actually.

    It's always a bonus to find a plant that blooms for you...congrats! I'm always amazed when I get a new one to re-bloom. It never fails to make a person smile.
