This plant is far more beautiful than this photo would suggest. I'll try to upload a picture as it is blooming now. Cinnamon Scentsation got burned back a bit with some late temperatures in the twenties, but it is doing fine and beginning to bloom now, in mid March. It is lovely and its fragrance is delicate and wonderful.
