This plant will bloom all year in Hawaii. I've had a dozen blooms at one time during the summer. During the winter months I usually get one bloom a day. I wear them in my hair almost daily. I've received so many compliments on it and when I give them away are just amazed at the size and fragrance. I've only discovered the name of the plant recently even though I've had it for a couple of years. It's a great plant for any flower lover.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
