The flowers look very similar to the Chinese Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) so I imagine the perfume may well be similar. I love perfumed flowers but sometimes they can be a little overpowering. Others I like are white Nicotiana, Osmanthus, Pink Evening Primrose, Sweet Peas, Roses, Ginger, Gardenias (I had these in my wedding bouquet and the perfume gave me a headache ... at least, I think it was the perfume, Lemon Verbena, Boronia, Buddliea, even pansies, petunias and stocks, and probably heaps more that I can't think of at the moment.

Hope the weather cools down for you soon.


It smells heavenly, I know. When I first saw your photo, I thought it was euphorbia. It may be in the same family, as it has similar leaves and the blossoms march all up and down the stem in small clusters too.


More please on the bio-sewerage and the (?)fortuituous placing of the Night Jasmine there?


For a start - the Night Jasmine was there first. The bio-system takes all our household waste including grey water. The sewage is treated aerobically and the water that ends up on the garden doesn't smell - HONESTLY. But we are not permitted to use it on any edible food plants and are required to display 'Do Not Drink' signs beside the sprinklers.

That's the top of the bio-system pump you can see beside the bananas in the pic at the top of my blog. The holding tank is underground.
