I just love the smell of these Imperialis. It's what I call a wafter. Some flowers you can bend & smell immediately, others, waft on the breeze & not when you put your nose to them.

A lovely look, a little darker that many I've seen. I like it. Wafter is a good name for it. I've heard this isn't one you want to stick you nose into anyhow. Probably better letting the smell drift about in the air.

It's rather a peculiar smell Greenthumb, but as I said I like it.
