    that sounds like a very strange scent... is it pleasant? or gross? i like the shape of the flowers and the patterning.

    Creosote, really? Are we talking about that nasty stuff made of petroleum products, used on roads and roofs? Because the last thing on Earth that I would describe that as is pleasant.

    But you have to love the flowers. I can't grow things like these. Not enough room and light requirement too high. Grats to you!
