Growing local

The buds are kickin' in. Last count I had 23 Frangipani trees about the place.

Perfume? Of the few exotics that will keenly grow here are Frangipanis and Jasmine. So it can get quite wiffy.

The Frangipanis are, of course slow growers, and last season was a poorly flowering one. This year the wiff radar looks promising.I grow 'em for shade and they also function as great trellising.

 If/when they all bloom: Wow! Wonderland.

Filling the house with heady perfume?
