    Default Onc. Blackwood 'Sweet One'

    I don't think this plant is happy in south Florida, but it mangaged to bloom for me. The flowers are a nice red/black, it is supposed to be very fragrant but I don't detect any smell.

    Fragrance might be keyed to the time of day or temperature (I find some plants are more fragrant when it is warm out than when temps are cooler).

    Very dark coloration. Nice change from the usual yellow of many onc.
