This year, I have had at least one neo plant in bloom every month. It is not normal but it is great for me since I love them and love sniffing on their sweet fragrance. :)

This Manjushage is blooming for the third time this year.
January, April and July.
It typically blooms around May-June for me. A reliable bloomer for me and it has a nice flower count since I get 3-6 flowers per spike on other neos on average. This plant bears minimum 5-7 per spike every time. :)




The next one is Fugaku.
I couldn't find the right angle to show all three spikes.
This plant grows fast and blooms very well for me.

Sooo beautiful and I love the fragrance too. I don't have the proper
conditions to bloom Neos., but I enjoy seeing them here.

Very charming plants! It sounds strange that I never had in my life one of this little jewels!
Time to buy some.
Are the pink/violet flower varieties sweet smelling too?

They are typically fragrant, yes.
The ones in the purple blue shades may not be fragrant at all, though.

I love all 47 of mine but grow just for foliage. I could never get them to grow in bark.
