1runnybeak1... If I remember I had it in a multi purpose compost with a little grit and sand and on a patio that had sun most the day but I don't think a put enough grit and sand in, plus I watered it with grow more liquid feed which I don't think it liked... The 'soil' in my raised bed is literally a mixture of old compost from potted plants that died, lots of hardcore stones and literally muck swept up off my path! I made the raised bed to grow herbs in as it gets baked most of the day ( around 8 hours of sun) and they seem to do quite well there. Ive only watered it twice this year with no feed and let the rain do the rest... I took the picture as it was going dark as the flowers are fully opened then... I really hope it takes for you as you'll love the smell wafting through the air and it's even better on a still, humid night!

Hi 1runnybeak1...


if you manage to get them settled in you really won't be disappointed with the scent it gives off and the flowers are really nice too... I've taken a couple of cuttings today and trying my luck!

I've had mine around 2 to 3 years... It didn't flower the first couple years then when I gave up on it and moved it it took off! We haven't had a very cold winter with much snow the last few years so I wouldn't like to say?...

its a bit of a mouthful!... Zaluzianskya ovata! The soil in my raised bed is all the bits swept off the floor and its full of stones so I presume it likes poor dry soil... I tried growing it next to my back door as the perfume is really powerful but it didn't like it!... Tempted to dig it up with the soil from the raised bed but afraid I'll see it off!


Forgot to put, they only fully open when the daylight fades and the scent is really strong at night... The buds look like lots of match sticks during the day! 😊

Just been out in the garden and walked into the most heavenly scent! I've tried to grow this for a number of years and gave up and stuffed it into a gap in my raised bed in the back alley and it's now decided to take off!! (Sorry, my pics have turned upside down!)

Thank you for the lovely comments. Lots of really nice gardens on here!

I'm looking for some front of border low growing gap fillers. I planted a few saxifrage last year and lost all but one over the winter, I don't think they like the heavy clay soil?! Does anyone know anything similar that has white flowers and doesn't mind heavy soil?

 


 Another pic from a different angle of the garden... There'll be no room for me soon!
