    I've been growing this plant for a couple of years, but it is not mine. It is a decidous species and the flowers are a bit under 4" wide and pleasantly fragrant. It is growing in a 6" pot.

    A: Thanks. It is growing under a bench and when I pulled it out I was quite impressed.
    B: I got pollen from a grower (along with a piece of the leaf to test) and the pollen donor plant tested virused. So I borrowed the whole plant so I could set a pod and keep my plant clean. I still have the plant and am trying again for seed. Otherwise, I think it would be mine too. The reason it is under the bench is to keep it isolated from non-virused plants.
