Roses Mikey, they smell exactly like roses. They just opened overnight, so I will smell them this evening and see if they are any stronger at night...

Very pretty, Tish! I love the grape colored corollas! Mine's probably a long way from blooming - it's been a slow starter for me. I got it as a cutting from Yale a few years ago and it rooted, but didn't grow for the LONGest time. It put on a little growth last year, and it seems to be starting to grow this year. I hope this will be the year it takes off...

Thank you everyone!!! The scent is stronger at night (evening) and you can smell a hint of it when you walk into the room. I think if there were three or four peduncles with blooms it would be fantastic, however, more than that I think would be over powering. I'll let you know if that ever happens :)

Tish, congrats!

Roses, huh? Hmm, I've got to find a way to make more room! LOL. The flowers are really neat on this one!

Cool Tish, I love the color of the flowers. You do a good job taking pics too. Good job. . .

Can you show a pic of the leaves please? I have a solid green one, it grows good but kind of a boring plant.

Thanks Tish. . .

Thanks Puggers!!! I think I took 20 pictures and got maybe 5 really good shots. I do love the leaves, it's the reason I bought this one. Again, thank you for the compliments!
