On its flowering cycle plants are literally loaded down with clusters of highly fragrant, trumpet-shaped, white flowers.
The flowers are borne from the trunk and stems in large masses. These blooms are intensely fragrant with a very pleasingly sweet fruity fragrant. The scent carries for great distances.
