    the flowers smell the same in the tricolor clone and are the same shape but different color and the spike is more condensed

    This is the 'Tricolor' clone

    Thanks for that photo Ron, it really shows the colors nicely. My tri colors has 4 spikes and not all the flowers have opened yet. So the pictures I'm trying to get are not great. I'm finding the fragrance on the tri colors to be a bit softer but that could be the plant is not as large as the sweet fragrance plant.

    Leslie, I find that on sunnier days the fragrance is stronger than on overcast days. Have you found the spikes to be less spindly on the tricolor clone?

    Hi Ron, no they are just as spindly. They are even a little more "bendy" for lack of a better word. lol
