It has taken some years to have enough of an increase in these bulbs to 
become a patch of flowers.  Then a couple of nights ago I happened to go 
past them after dark.  It was a wind-still evening and the scent from 
the Z. drummondii was just amazing.  And the white of the flowers almost 
glowed in the dark.

It was the first time I had that experience since planting the seed in 
2008.  And the scent was still there the following morning.  Now I see 
what is meant by them being night flowering. As the flowers are open 
during day and night for some days, it had not been so noticeable.
