Lovely for enjoying the garden in the evening.


These are one of the most memorable flowers I have ever grown. A tiny seed the size of a grain of salt. A magnificent towering unbelievably fragrant flower. It does take some space but it is a real delight in the evening when it blooms. It has been twenty plus years and I still remember it vividly. If you are a large flower lover this will not disappoint.

A study in sizes - from dust to dinosaur


Mammoth plant with delicate white flowers. We started several plants for family members and they grew best in pots that were kept cooler. Super tiny seeds but good germination. We were hoping it would be a far stronger fragrance- it is lovely but you need to get your nose right up to the flower to get it. Very fun and surprising grow!
