Dracaena really in bloom

Previously, I posted pictures about my Dracaena deremensis blooming.  Well, truth be told, it hadn't actually bloomed yet.  The pictures I posted were just the flower buds - and lots of them!  I didn't realize that at the time.

Since then, the buds have been opening and filling my greenhouse with what can only be described as a controversial fragrance.  To me, it smells bad.  To some, it apparently smells good.  It actually smells a lot like some perfume fragrances that I don't care for, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised that it does smell good to some people!


  1. Wish I had stepped on in the other day and seen this. It is very pretty!

  2. My Dracaena deremensis is blooming now and is only really fragrant at night, it must be a night shade. It smells beautiful in my living room.
