    Wow! Those are some crazy-cool flowers.


    Do you remember those sticky octopus toys that used to come in cereal boxes--you would throw them at the wall and they would stick and then walk down? The blooms kinda look like those crazy things. They really are pretty cool.

    That's cool, Prem. I swear I just wish the flowers on some of these were a little bigger. It may just be my crappy eyesight that keeps me from wanting to grow things with tiny flowers.

    the flowers are not that terribly small...a little over a half-inch across, and they are borne in fairly dense flower heads. If you can't see the flowers, you can certainly smell them at night...the fragrance carries for 10 feet or more from the flowers during the evening time.
