Yellow bird fragrant at night
I got this brassolaeliocattleya "Yellow bird" a month ago. It already had a flower spike with four flowers. I had a pleasant surprise to find them opening after the Easter holidays. The color was a bit washed out at first, but it turned into yellow ina couple of days, as the name promises.
It also has a very pleasant smell, which can be felt as the night approaches. I can't put my finger on it, but it's something familiar, sweet and spicy. Ah, i got it, it is Lonicera caprifolium L.
I have the plant next to my face while writing this post. But even if it's standing on the window sill the mild scent can be felt in some places of the room.
