Hope this is the latest name. Lovely perfume, flowered on a very small plant and seems tolerant of adverse conditions.

It's a funny thing - I used to live in a part of Florida where every live oak tree had these blooming on its branches, but nobody actually cultivated them. I guess I'll have to get one for old times' sake - I do miss them.

What a beautiful bloom! I'll have to look for this one, small plant & fragrance is just what I need. I'll check on Cindy too.
