Pretty blossoms, are they scented?

It’s a very elegant flower, Stan. I was wondering about scent also?

A very light scent of Gardenia. It's just unbelievable that such a plant has grace. You would never guess looking at it.

Anybody getting a Georgia O'Keeffe vibe?

Oh yes, I see what you mean. Very artistic vibe, Stan.

My plant didn’t bloom this year.

It still has one single white petal that does not want to give up on mid December. The stem of the bloom first emerged in June. So,here in the bay area its a very slow process from start to finish. It outlasted the Plumeria. Both started about the same time too...maybe Celadine was first by a few weeks.

Wow! That’s amazing! My Pachypodium is a rare variety (of unknown species). My plumerias still have flowers for now. Some are loosing leaves.
