    I grow both the double and single types of polianthes. I agree that the
double one smells very much like gardenia. The single one has more of its
own smell, and I think it is even more delightful. One thing I think I have
discovered is that they last longer as cut flowers and smell better if they
are in a non-air-conditioned room. My guess is that low humidity affects
them. When I get around to unearthing my tuberoses, I'll probably have
extras to give to the BX.
