Bunga Kerak Nasi





Sweet fragrance of Bunga Kerak Nasi permeates my backyard now.  My plant now has 6 clusters of blooms. This is my first time having so many blooms at one time.

We didn't transfer our Bunga Kerak Nasi from our old place when we moved 2 years ago.  I craved to grow Bunga Kerak Nasi, commonly used in making 'bunga rampai' (potpourri) in my hometown, Melaka.  Eventually I got us another pot of plant from a nursery in Sg. Buluh.

The plant grows better on the ground than in a pot. I trimmed it often to control it from creeping messily.  I am not certain if the regular trimming actually helped to make the plant bloom profusely.  But I am very happy looking at those blooms and enjoying the perfume fragrance in my backyard.

The blooms are so lovely. This is a new plant to me. The form of the flowers is a little different. How wonderful that they have a great fragrance too.

What lovely blooms. I'm crazy about climbers as they bloom profusely and most have a sweet fragrance. I am going to scour the nursery for this plant after been inspired by yours.

I have found your blog and it is like to find a soul mate.
I have the same passion for beautiful gardens and I work on creating my own one.
My garden is "on the other side of the globe" but we have a lot of common.
