That is two more flowers than mine at present, but last year I didn't get flowers till 24 October, despite being kept inside in the conservatory. Also I cut mine in half and gave half away.

Battering, salty winds, that is the down side of living so close to the coast. But at least you enjoyed the scent for a while. Can't say I noticed the perfume last year when mine flowered, I would have remembered. Now Salvia sclarea, what a delicious scent, although a huge plant. I am going to grow it again just for that citrus odour, but place it more appropriately.

I agree that it is well worth growing just for the scent. Sadly no hope of mine blooming this year.

Beauty (Scent) is in the nose of the beholder? Or the temperature of the environment?
