I love the smell of this plant. Planted 3 of them close to the enrtance. Sort of vanilla-ish? I hope I still will be able to smell them when we come home in April.
Yours is well advanced Plantoholic.

Thanks both, Klahanie they usually flower in feburary here. Thats a shame Sticky they usually flower when they are quite young so hopfully you will get some next year. :o)

i bought it last year and it had flowers on, there are a few berries but no flowers ~ have i put it in too shaded an area?

It should be fine in the shade, mine gets very little sun and I also have a S.confusa in full shade which is also flowering well.:o)

maybe i just have to be patient, i was going to buy another little one but they weren't cheap!

bought a lily of the valley ~ thats out now instead plus a double white hellebore!

Double white Hellebore sounds nice, I have a love hate relationship with Lily of the valley I love the scented flowers but it's a bit invasive.

Mine is full shade as well and it is doing well.

it doesnt grow very fast in this garden so hopefully it will be ok but im wondering if this is a different type ~ mine would normally flower in May
