    I consider this the first "official" blooming of this plant.
    It did bloom last year but the two flowers produced were quite deformed - not uncommon for first time bloomers.

    It has a very strong yet pleasing scent, similar to "sambac" type jasmine flowers.

    John, these are lovely. It looks like they're trying to reach up to the mirror to admire themselves - can't say I blame them!
