    Hi Mietek,it is Thrixspermum tsii ,named after Mr.Zhanhe-Ji. I love its fragrance. But so pity its florescence is only several hours! Mine is blooming now as yours.

    Zuoxin, you are right, the bloom last just one day, which is common, but my plant opened 8 flowers at the same time. Great view.
