Mandevilla laxa from Logee's
I broke down and ordered Mandevilla laxa 'Chilean Jasmine' from Logee's since it's currently on sale. What can I say...I'm a sucker. I've been curious about it for a couple of years now and always check every white mandevilla I come across just on the odd chance it might be a laxa but of course it never is. I've read various accounts of its fragrance, everything from a heavy scent to a light scent to no scent at all and some describe it as a jasmine scent, vanilla scent or gardenia scent. I realize scent is subjective and that different cultivars can smell different so I'm wondering if anyone has purchased one from Logee's and what their thoughts are on the scent from the Logee's plant?
How does the plant perform in extreme heat? Does it continue to flower or does it just sulk and sit there until cooler weather arrives? Any info/tips would be appreciated.
I suppose if I'm disappointed with the scent from the Logee's plant I can try my hand at growing them from seed and see if any of the seedlings have a strong scent.
