Thank you Bg. It has flowered each autumn for the last 3 years, if you can call November, autumn, but usually the flowers are ruined by inclement weather.
Ps, the forecast for Sunday, is for rain. Ruined then? Call me a pessimist?

If you just get rain, they will be OK. Strong wind is another story. If they blow over, cut them, make an indoor display. Did you notice their delicate sweet smell? They actually have a wonderful scent - it freshens up a room nicely.

Thank you Gg, as pretty as the spring flowering, but only one out of a clump of about 5.
Linda, Last year my rebloomers flowered so late, in Dec, that the flowers buds just turned to mush.
