Another one is Chambali but everyone picks the flowers.
It gives you frustration or pleasure?

I thought tulsi flowers are not fragrant at all. The leaves are fragrant/aromatic.

I had two Motia bushes between my house and the road, ladies on early morning walk loved to pick the flowers, I only requested them to leave some for those coming later.Now I have a hedge of Motia and enough flowers for every one.

Arif sb: the fragrance gives me pleasure and flower pickers the frustration especially I find them on the road distance discarded at some distance.

On another topic I really liked your garden and plant collection. Clearly shows the effort put into nurturing it.

AYK, thank you. Khan Sb. I am a tired oops, a retired gardener,now concentrating on effortless, sorry, less effort gardening. Planting plants that I can forget after planting.Except the beloved ones I will keep only one or two of each kind.
The best of all fragrant plants remains my Plumeria.

Brig sahab can u kindly share your wisteria experience from planting till now. How long it took to flower? Floribunda vs sinensis? Training it? Does its soft wood mature to hard wood as 'quickly' as that of Bougainville? How often n when does it flower? Is air layering possible with it?
