Comments: One the most fragrant of flowers and it is thought to be used in the most expensive perfumes in the world. I may bloom at any season of the year and does so more than once per year. Will need winter protection when temperature drops below freezing for several hours. A great container plant for areas too cold for growing outside in winte. It must have good to superior if in a container or in the ground.
