Lovely Tony. Having pointed out to my better half "Look at these, all subtly different shades", the response was "this from the bloke who could paint one kitchen wall green and another blue and not know the difference".

It's fascinating to watch pollinating insects selectively choosing which flowers to land on, isn't it? I've often wondered which particular combination of factors influences their choices. Colour? Scent?. New or older flower? Abundance of pollen/nectar? (how do they 'know' this before alighting to check it out?) Does your cilicium album have much of a scent, Melvyn, and does it shed much pollen? At the moment, the bees in my greenhouse are heading straight for the purpurascens, occasionally being diverted by some scented heferifoliums, mirabile not getting much of a look in!
Steve it has a good scent but no evidence of pollen so I guess the bees think its not worth visiting.

That's what I call "keen to grow" - makes you wonder why we bother with pots of carefully prepared compost, doesn't it?  ::)
Very nice when the plants prove so happy to grow themselves though  :D

Steve
          I presume that is one of the cse plants I passed on to you. If so that is brilliant, I don't remember it being that good or growing it that well.

There's another variety of cilicium which is supposed to be white with a dark nose - Bowles variety - anyway mine came up as usual.

That is interesting, Mark.  I thought no-one knew what the original 'Bowles variety' looked like.  I grew C. cilicium from seed a few years ago as 'Bowles Variety'.  I had a few ordinary cilicium, one pure white and one white with a pink nose.  Some seedlings from it may flower this year so it will be interesting to see how many come true.
