RE: Clerodendrum trichotomum was: Theresa's pics

The one in the Hawaii picture smelled very much like a lilac-  I could smell
it before we actually figured out which tree was scented (so yes I wandered
around the garden sniffing everything to find which tree had the scent)

I have that, too, Zem and cut it back hard each spring to where it
starts branching and it makes at least 10' or so by fall.  Wanted it
for years and a friend sent me one and can't say I'm that excited now
I've had it for a while, but could be it's just not getting enough
sun to really put on a great show.  See mine is suckering, too and
need to dig up those babies and do something with them!  Does yours
flower like it's supposed to?  Seems to me it smells a bit like
peanut butter:-)
