The blooms on this plant seem to be getting bigger. Some have said it may be Hilo Beauty and it may be, but I will continue to call it Black Garnet since that was the name that was used when I bought it. My Hilo Beauty is developing inflos, so I should be able to aompare them before too long.

To give you an idea of the size of this flower I have photographed it with Guillot Sunset and an unknown yellow that I consider to be average size for a plumeria.

It has a earthy floral scent - not very sweet. Somewht reminds me of a carnation; however, I am not a connoisseur of scents. The scent gets stronger a while after you pick the flower.
