    Flowers are fragrant scent of lemon like aroma emanates morning and evening, there is a difference between the two flowers, I think there may be a mutation occurs

    I always love the Blc. Ports of Paradise blooms. Beyond the wonderful fragrance, they have such great color and shape.

    Cheers,

    Blc or should it be Rlc Ports of Paradise is such an 'unstable' bloom that the flowers vary at different times on the same plant due to weather, fertiliser, watering and heaven knows what else. It could be a show winner at one time and one not-worth-a-second look at another. Any way that is my opinion and the opinion of few others.

    I agree with you Bruce. Also, this hybrid is a very prolific and floriferous bloomer.
