Satsuki seedling, second year flowering. Not really sure yet if this is worth enough to be named, but my nicest one so far. I will definitely keep it.

Ooooh! I can smell the fragrant!
Is this Murraya paniculata or some kind of Jasmine?
It is Wrightia Religiosa. Also known as Water Jasmine. Similar fragrant as other Jasmine's but the flower is hanging down.

Thank you for your reply @namnhi
Years ago I had bought some seeds of Wrightia religiosa on ebay and they germinated most of them but I didn't have luck with growing them... they died after some months.

Well, this is the flower of a native rainforest tree, called "Manacá da Serra".
It blooms in white, after a few hors they turn into pink, and they die purple, so the three colors can be seen at any time on them.
It blooms late Fall, usually.
Can't be grown as a bonsai as the trunk is always skinny and the roots need space...

Father in-law dropped off some nice flowers!
Dang! They smell amazing!
Some kind of perennial lily, right?
I will plant them in the garden.

They’re stargazer lilies. The most amazing flower ever IMO, and they come back every year better than the last. I bought three for my mom on mother’s day and those three flowering bulbs have turned to 9+.

Awe man! Awesome news!
Thanks!
Yes sir! I’ve posted them a few times already but here they were last Fourth of July, currently they have large flower buds but they haven’t opened yet! Can’t wait
