Hope so, as it is so fragrant - mine opened up today.
My single flowered form is a few weeks behind.

yes indoors, the front porch hits high 30 degrees every evening, i can't wait to see it open, i wonder why the single is behind ?

The single got a plague of spider mite - it was under my Bluebell Creeper that got affected last winter and there must have been eggs left behind.
