Our Pikake Bush Is In Bloom!

This photo is only one small section of the large pikake bush growing outside our home. If you've never smelled pikake, you're in for a treat when you do. Pikake rivals night blooming jasmine as one of the most fragrant smells on the planet. Pikake leis are considered very special--just look at how small the flowers are! This pikake fragrance permeates our home and blooms several times a year.

The flowers look a little like a jasmine, so I looked it up - and it's Jasminium Sambac, which I have in my garden - except than mine is a pathetic version of yours. It's climbed well but is leggy compared with your wonder.
