Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Stenopetala finally opened, a little spidery flower from Cuba with a large wafting scent. No-Clue, I immediately thought of you and your love of scents. Got the plant this spring, grafted (in nature, it's vine like). It was only about 6 inches tall, so I certainly didn't expect flowers this year. But there you go! This is a very unusual and special plumeria.

Oh, and here's a pic of the plant and the flower before it opened. The whole thing is less than 8 inches tall.

Simi,
Very nice!!!.. Its a profuse bloomer, and is a vine bush. I have mine running up and on 2 different plumeria trees as it is kind of Wild when it gets large. Ive had mine since its intro @ FC in 2005. I am considering getting rid of it as its a bit much to work with. There is a tree version that Brad @BBB sells, I believe its a cross between Stenopetala and Pudica..

Thanks for sharing
Cheers

Freak, that sounds awesome! If you do decide to get rid of it someday and want to sell it, let me know, I've got some nice spots to enjoy it from!

I love it! So delicate and what a beautifully sculpted flower. I tried a Steno. once but wasn't successful.

Congrats on your bloom!

Thanks, Nicole, I appreciate it.

I misestimated the height - the plant is abut 13". Couple more flowers about to open.

Laura, from the canoe you can smell the Firestorm and the butterfly gingers when you pass by. LOL. I got the canoe for rivers and lakes, but decided to practice in the pool. The dogs like it so much, though, that we haven't taken it out!

And maybe grape Koolaid - yes, Bill Moragne is almost ready to open for the first time!!! WOOOHOOO! I am so fidgety and excited about it, that I'm out there every 30 minutes with a flashlight. May sleep in the canoe tonight, just in case it opens overnight LOL I've been waiting for this one with great anticipation! (Greater than even usual!)

RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Flashlight in the night eh?

I know what that is like.

Do it all the time. Neighbors love me!! Lol

Can't wait to see Bill open for you!!! How exciting!!! ;-)

Enjoy your day !!!

Such a dangerous forum! This is why I haven't been on it in days. Laugh.
Congrats on your bloom!
Of course now I want one. ;)

RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

I know, Laura, I got the idea from you, LOL. Hasn't opened yet. Dang, I have to go to work. I have a webcamera though, I'll point it at Bill so I can check from work. Boy, this has gotten out of hand!


 o
RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Simi,

What is this?!! Is this a Plumeria or what?? What fragrance? I want one! LOL


 o
RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Too cool!

Robert, I know, this forum is too dangerous, I want one now. My CHAD is really severe this year (chronic horticulture acquisition disorder).
Tally HO!

RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Lynn, I thought of you as soon as it opened and the scent wafted out.

It's little, scrawny and vine-like - but it smells great!


 o
RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Where did you get this cutie? I might have to get one!


 o
RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Florida Colors. Grafted and rooted. It was so tiny when I got it in the spring that I thought that no way would it bloom this year.

RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

Lnorigb, No joke! Left over from housebreaking my dogs - it's amazing how useful they are with furniture and plants! Water without fear.

I am working on a little greenhouse, so someday the cuttings will be there. But I'm enjoying them now in the area where I work.

RE: Stenopetala - what a scent on a tiny flower

I'm so jealous! Mine has put out some nice growth but no flowers! It's start to droop so I might need to trellis it soon.

Here's a pic:

It's looking great! Hope you get flowers soon!
