that's surprising. I'm usually the last to notice fragrance. Unlike the rest of me my nose seems to be very insensitive but CLIVIA blooms greet me when I step into the greenhouse. I hadn't even realized they were coming into bloom until I was strolling out one afternoon and saw them facing the plastic shouting "Hey, LOOK AT ME!". It's so crowded that I hadn't even noticed them in the outside row. I'm not usually fond of orange in much of anything but in CLIVIA they seem so vivid they should glow in the dark. The yellow is actually green ... until it opens. You know how VERY much that excites me.
