    Lovely plant and white flower @Petronius but I was shocked at how big the leaves was for the actual flower.

    Stephanotis prefers soil on the moist side but never waterlogged. It should be watered enough to keep the soil moist during the summer months.

    I bet that plant would love our soil and gravel then.

    No although it is nice..it's a climber :( it's boarder plants if some don't come back and then I have to see what the garden centres have to offer as I won't buy on line, as I like to see what i'm purchasing.

    @Gail-Steman, I agree that it is a good idea to see exactly what the plants and flowers look like. :setc_077::setc_077::setc_077::setc_077:

    I use to buy a jasmine from Steins garden center every summer, our area is too cold to put it in the ground here. I love the smell of it and I always go in the tropical plant building just to smell it when they get it in.
    ....I have gotten some nice plants through romence gardens in Michigan, their cigar plants are always so beautiful and they use to care Hot lips salvia but they quit carrying it... I love to see the plants too but it is harder and farther to get to some of the places since we moved....especially when some of the places only get a small amount of certain plants..
