It rained hard today, and the perfume almost knocked me out when I opened the front door, even though the plants are all the way across the yard. There were 4 blooms last night, and 5 several days ago, and I forgot to look at them. Today I put notes up for myself!

Very nice. They bloom at night and close during the day? Where are you? Natural or planted?

They bloom at night and that's it. They are gone forever. I'm in south Louisiana, and I found them at a nursery several years ago, but they are almost always passalong plants.
