    Cool Angcm. Crestwood

    I was so excited to find this plant sitting on the nursery bench. I hung it in the greenhouse and looked it up. It's the closest thing to a Sesquipedale i've found so far. The nectary measures just over 9 inches on this flower.

    They are supposed to have a wonderful scent at night. I'm told it should make the entire greenhouse smell wonderful.

    Beautiful, Connie. I have been wanting one of these for a long time. When I am in your area in January I'll have to look for one. Thanks for sharing yours.

    Next time I am at the nursery I will ask if they can make sure one is there for you in January. I need to go pick up a few things again....and it's one of those places I look for any excuse to go. lol

    The husband has taken to watching over the thermostats in the greenhouse...and he still insists he isn't interested in them at all. lol (he's so cute) I had mentioned that it might take a couple days for the scent to get going on this one. So imagine my suprise this evening when he came flying back in the door and told me to come take a smell. It smells kind of like vanilla, but spicy and it really is strong. I stood at the door on the far side from the plant and had no problem being able to smell it what-so-ever.
