New this season for me...Actually pretty fragrant when the sun is shining. Label says mild spice, I smell strong fruit, go figure. Even in the intense heat, flowers last amost a week with loads of petals, slowly swirling open. This hybrid is growing like crazy in my area, I hope it comes back strong next year.
