It's very unusual. I've never seen one before.

Beautiful. I've got one in my garden, far too overgrown. Needs a good cut. I hope your cuttings all take well. :-) They are such a pleasant plant.

thanks GT. I hope my cuttings root too. So far only the Gloxinia and begonias rooted...I'm trying to root the roses and impatiens as well..haha my windowsills look very messy right now..haha

Lynn, I hope your Frangipani seeds germinate soon :) I know how you feel..ten of my sunflower seeds didn't germinate at all.neither did my french Marigold .only the pansy sad..the previous batch only one lonely sunflower seedling survived. And it looks sad and pathetic after the rain..yellow leaves and skinny..sigh!! It has been raining alot.
