What a name! That's very pretty. Do the flowers change colour a bit as they age?

They change from white to yellow like the gardenia, Luzy.

I'd love to be able to grow one of these in Sydney (there's one in the RBG) but can't find a supplier (online at least). I've heard they don't transplant well and grow best from seed. Any suggestions?

Gardenwriter, when I bought this one - about 10 years ago- they were not common, but recently I have seen quite a few in nurseries and even Bunnings. We certainly had no problems with this plant. I do not think I have seed of it but will check. I will also check under plant for seedlings and suckers. Most brunfelsias grow readily from suckers and cuttings.

The Estate, it has a strong perfume at night - hence the common name. Not really a gardenia perfume, but very nice.

I've found one! The Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney sells this plant as tubestock.
