I should have a bunch of seed from the typical form of L. formosanum in a
month or two.  I had planned to cut off all the unripe seed capsules to
stop volunteers sprouting everywhere, but I could just as easily let them
ripen if there is anyone who still wants some.

The fragrance is wonderful, and it was fun to watch the big, powerful
hornworm moths visit the flowers at dusk.
