    so it gives it a pinkish hue.

    One of the negative reviews is about the scent. It's overwhelming but it doesn't smell like cat pee as the reviewer suggests. It's just a very strong sweet fragrance; more like an elderly woman wearing way too much perfume which makes your eyes water.

      I do grow that one. I got some from the Atlanta friend who grows it indoors (I think Franki does too). You don't often see it in Florida, probably for good reason, because some years it blooms, some years it doesn't. But it is a true jasmine and I've never found the scent of any of them to be unpleasant.

      On the other hand, this is the one I find suffocating. Neighbors in Florida have fights over this one. Some people can't bear the smell of it.

      Some of the negative comments are hilarious.

      What about the climate cliff?
