    My U. odorata has flowered, and true to its name, it smells. Not the most pleasant smell in the world, but unmistakable. It is a very sweet smell, but there is something a bit repellant about it that I can't quite put my finger on.

    If it smells repellant, why would you want to put your finger on it? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Another victory! Pretty soon I am going to start a collection to buy you a digicam, it would be worth it just to see these flowers.

    Never fear, I have access to a camera. I have a few more pics to get, then I will do some revisions to the website. I'm still waiting to see if U. chrysantha is the real thing, and U. hispida is coming along slowly.

    Whoever has a U scandens from me, it is either U. lateriflora or heavily contaminated with it. If anyone has a true specimen of U. scandens, I would be interested in trading!
