Okay. I admit I've been a little obsessed lately with Plumerias and have been lurking on that forum but I wanted to share with my fragrant lover friends Jasminum molle, a jasmine from northern Australia.
This beaut has been perfuming our backyard at night. This is my second year with it and the mother plant has grown HUGE!
Thanks to Kemistry telling me about the Forysthe pot method I was able to create several babies from the cuttings that I took when I had to shear the beast down last fall before it spend the winter in the basement. ;)
The scent is hard to describe. Definitely not like a sambac. I always say like a musky gardenia but that doesn't do it justice. Suffice to say some will hate it and some will adore it.
Anyway it deserves to be better known.
Here's a pic of the mother plant growing like gangbusters in a huge pot with three babies around it.
Flowers open at dusk and have fallen from the plant when I get home at night after work.
You can tell when this one is blooming. It wafts!
