Three years before it flowered more than one or two but now its mature, one of the best I would say DD, good colour, texture and the great perfume.

I must have one. That's so gorgeous! Does it have a sweet, perfume scent.

Yes it does Delonix, very strong when there is a bunch of flowered really well this year. Its very similar to Bella Lugosi which I also have, but I reckon its much superior, a tad smaller but much better texture and colour retention.
I have a small path which divides a garden - it ends in a wall, so goes nowhere. This plant is near the wall so the perfume seems trapped I just stand and wallow in it lol..I don't even have to bend down to sniff them!
