It does have a great perfume . I rarely pick flowers I prefer to enjoy them in the garden .

Lovely flower, Pitta! I'm going to try and get one. Is it hardy? I remember seeing something like this in my uncle's garden in India many years ago when I was a child. The climate is hot and humid over there.
