Quisqualis (Rangoon Creeper) sometimes is called Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow in Hawaii? Its flowers open as white, then next day turn pink, then will fade to dark mauve tomorrow... Its fragrance is as strong as jasmine, but is more mild and fruity. Wondering if one of my Hawaii friends could mail me a cutting or three :)

It almost looks like some kind of hybrid honeysuckle.

I just looked online and you can buy them in seed or seedlings. Also eBay had the seeds, sprouts and small plants for sale and not expensive either. Hope this helps.

That's really pretty. If it is here it's going to be in someone's yard or at the botanical gardens. I only see Stephanotis on fences.

That is gorgeous...wonder how far north it would grow and would it bloom in one season as an annual like we do with Moon Vine for example. Love that!!

I've been reading up on it and it says that it grows all over the US. The only thing is, in the winter it needs to be protected with mulch and then it should come back the following year. It also said that you could put them in pots, which would give you the option of bringing them inside for the winter,( after they've been cut back of course)

that is gorgeous...most likely would not grow here except as an annual.

Make sure whomever is mailing anything that you check out the rules of sending plant material by mail. They're more strict about that than drug trafficking I swear! Big penalties if you're caught....at least across borders...not sure about States.

I actually ordered some from eBay because I thought they were so pretty. I'm getting 25 seeds and 5 sprouts for $13.00 including shipping. I'm going to try them here. I will have to bring them in for the winter so that the new seeds will be good for next year. We will see how they make out.
