The strictum blooms are equally intriguing Bob, thanks for sharing that with us and other. This year mine didn't bloom for some reason.

I love the way the "star" fills the opening in your first picture!
It's a good night in Coastal North Carolina for Strictum bloom and the aroma is nice indeed. Five blooms tonight on this plants fourth blooming this year..

Beautiful blooms.

Mine look like they are still a week away. Hope they hurry before we get frost and I have to move them inside.

Betty, do post your pics. to share their beauty when in blooms. Saturday morning, Jim woke up before I did, he was able to catch the flower in full bloom. I got up around 5:30 in the morning, and the flower was beginning to close up. :((

Is it normal for you folks on the east coast to get fall blooms? I've never seen mine do that before this year. I noticed 2 buds on my Epi. oxy last week, but totally missed the blooms.

With strictum and oxy, fall blooms are most common though I also have earlier blooms. bob
