Melianthus major, showing off its beautiful foliage after early morning rain
The first picture shows the bloom 1 day before opening, the second picture fully open and the third the following morning.
My plant has flowered on and off over the past 4 months, opening in the evening but gone by the following morning. The blooms have a weak, but not particularly pleasant scent, but the spectacular flowers make up for it
