Fantastic fragrant ornamental. Still quite rare in Hawai'i gardens where the most common Brunfelsia cultivated is B. americana. My friend has an old one in his garden in Wai'alae and it sets seed and produces volunteers. His climate is warm and dry and is growing adjacent to racks of Pachypodium and other Madagascar Euphorbia growing in pots. I don't know if more than one clone is necessary to make seed, but I sort of doubt it.

I love it! I sow seeds in January 2009, sprung up after 2-3 weeks. The first flower I saw in November. Smells heavenly! Likes full sun, but avoid midday and requires lots of water during the season.
