Congrats Sam!!! Not only are the flowers beautiful but the fragrance is intoxicating.

Mine bloomed better than ever this year. It needs some drastic pruning. It's growing over the fence into the neighbors yard and onto their Golden Vicary Privets. :eek:

I love them

The right way of pruning them is said to be the key for early blooming :wink:

Congrats! Yes, pruning and patience are the only ways to get these to flower. I've already shared this story with several customers here, and their jaws drop when I tell them it took 12 years!

Thanks for sharing :D
