    It's fabulous! Mine is about the same size as yours, but it doesn't have any red in the flowers. Mine should bloom soon. And I love the fragrance of these guys at night. :D

    Jean's motto: "I make plants happy." So is the redness just because of the clone, or is it in response to temperature or light intensity? I remember reading something once about cool temps or something leading to red in this species.

    I am waiting to see my second plant's bloom. It bloomed white last year but this year they have been growing side by side all fall, winter and spring. This flower should open any day now. If red, then I'd say the temps or light have something to do with it.
