Yo all,

Where could I get the hoa Thien Ly plants in US? My parents used to grow lot of hoa thien ly in Vietnam. It smell so good at night, and we cook with the flowers with beef or cook the soup...

As for Vietnamese people , there are song named "Gian Thien Ly", which is transalated from a English song,, but I forget the name... Anyone recall?

RE: Hoa Thien Ly

Alpharetta, I decided to take a wild shot at this . . . Is this plant also known as a Tonkin Jasmine?

The only plant perhaps vaguely like this that I have any familiarity with is a Plumeria that I have owned and cared for over nearly 10 years - almost our only house plant (ventures outdoors every Summer).

Flora Exotica has what they identify as "Tonkin Jasmine, Tonkin Creeper, Pakalana vine, Telosoma, Thien Ly."

This company is in Montreal, Quebec but they claim that, "we ship everywhere in North America and around the world."

Really, I don't know if this is what you are looking for but for want of a more knowledgeable responder . . . here's wishing you the best of luck.

The English song is "Scarborough fair". Digit got it right for the English name of Hoa Thien Ly.
