… that took 5 years to flower but what a lovely unusual fragrance.
Sweet honey alike fragrance: Stephanotis flower.
‘Stephanotis floribunda syn. S. jasminoides is a species of flowering plant in the family Apocynaceae, native to Madagascar. Growing to 6 m or more, it is an evergreen woody climber with glossy, leathery oval leaves and clusters of pure white, waxy, intensely fragrant tubular flowers’. (Wikipedia)
… but we also indulge ourselves with the fragrance of this Frangipani plumeria (origin: Jamaica).
Are you jealous now??? 😉
This Fenestraria specie (don’t ask which one! 😉 ) originates from Namibia and Namaqualand in South Africa. Beautiful to look at but you miss the extra-ordinary sweet/fruity fragrance; a feast for your nose .. Flower is fully open during a few hours in the afternoon.
