Blooms with highly fragrant flowers every fall. Flowers perfume the air in evening ,night,early morning and then fall . Carpet of flowers under the tree in the morning as a result. I took the lawn picture this morning,flowers are still falling and will have a nice layer on ground soon.
Beautiful plant and leaves supposedly have medicinal properties (arthristis etc).Orange part of flowers used for a natural dye.

It's all about choices.
Really beautiful, Alka. I am really looking forward to mine blooming...maybe next year if I can get them in the ground. Do you think they would be OK in a large pot?
Leap. The net will appear.

Oh yes. They do well in big pots.If yours is big enough, like 2-3 feet tall, you can try putting one or two in ground and see how they do. Hawaii is a bit warmer and rainier than Florida so they may be OK.
We get down to 40 or even below sometimes. I protect young potted ones and leave in ground one in ground .

They're so pretty! In the first picture they look so large, and then the carpet of them on the ground gave away just how tiny they are.

They are generally 1 and 1/2 inch +/- 1/4th of an inch.
