September Surprise!

Quickpost: I am elated to find that the Clerodendrum Reynold Sioson gave me as a small seedling is now almost my height. This is just less than a year after I received it. Not only was it growing like on steroids, it also bore its first blooms.

Some months ago I posted pictures of the Clerodendrum, which Leonard Co identified as C. minahassae. Now I am happy to report that C. minahassae's simple white flowers have a very faint sweet scent, so faint that you could only catch it when your nose are pointed very close to them. The smell is mild and gentle, like perfume used on babies.
