    Very different from the normal ones found here. Ours has bit of pink on the tips of the petals and sepals and also a bit of pink on front of the spur. Also the flowering season is normally in April/May though there may be some that have a second flowering season in August.

    I'm posting here our 'normal' odorata which can be found in abundance growing wild on the rain trees near my hosue.

    Even here in India, the primary season is April/May and it has lot more pink like the ones that Cattan has posted. I thought yours was a form of 'alba' as well!

    I put mine bare root in a wooden basket. It seems to be liking the monsoons and is putting out roots like crazy.

    I think both varieties are beautiful and would give a home to any that may sneak across our border. LOL

    Hey Yew, your 'normal' odorata looks almost like a lawrenceae to me and Chu's plant looks like an alba form ...

    So many variations in different countries ....

    Wow, I like both of these. And what's better than green and white blooms- lots of them - that smells like cinnamon?
