Thank you very much for your kind comments. I was not able to log on to your photobucket site to see your photos.
Mahalo and aloha.

I just had one of these flower at my place, and I've lived here for 8 and a half years and never seen it bloom until now. I'm in Brisbane, Australia.

Such a beautiful flower makes up for an ugly plant!

I have this plant outside in the summer in Columbia, SC. Last year I had 24 blooms open in the same evening. What a sight and fragrance.

This is very beautiful. I only know its Chinese name. Its stunning beauty lasts very short, maybe only a few night hours.
