          You want jam on it, don't you? :roflol: I haven't detected any scent so it fits in the Dipladenia/Pandorea/Podranea category.....beautiful but soulless :)

            That's an exaggeration! I germinated them last year and they've put on about 50cm so far this summer. That's with regular, generous watering and a splash of Miracle-Gro. So grown in pots, they're not badly-behaved at all :)

                Okay, so it is at droopy stage, but still nice. Is it scented? The garden looks great with the heat.

                  It was really droopy when I got home, it's reviving now I've drenched it but very lop sided.
