Nice pic darius -

Smart too - by the time they bloom, I'm always too sleepy to set up photo studio. That heavenly scent is probably only from dreams...

I live an hour and a half north of Sydney Australia and was given a cutting of this magic plant by a neighbour about three years ago, Last spring after returning home from my Grandsons 21st birthday at around 1am I and my visitors trecked down into the backyard with a torch and cameras in hand to witness the various stages of thirteen glorious blooms awakening. I registered on this wonderful site" Dave's Garden"just half an hour ago, and until then was not aware of it's correct name. I was told that the flower was both Male and 'Female and that is how pollination occurred. Can anyone confirm this theory please?
