This beauty blooms every year at the same time in our balcony.
The size of the flower is 1,5 X 2 cm and it has a strong fragrance all day, both sweet and lemon scented.

What a gorgeous plant! May I ask you where did you get it from? Some years ago I wanted to buy one, too. I gave up because the grower said that his clones of S. mitrata are not fragrant at all ?!?

Dana,
Our Seidenfadenia was a purchase from ebay seven years ago. The seller no longer exists or has changed his name.
After a little search that I made I found the Seidenfadenia mitrata at Wichmann's website and says that it's fragrant.
