 Mogra plants give beautiful fragrant flowers and the time is just right for the buds to open as the sun nears setting the fully loaded blooms open up during night and spread a heavenly fragrance   in the whole garden.

I have been observing the mogra plant when during winter it had almost been quiet for a while with only few   leaves on the woody stems. At first glance it looked as dead, dried and no life. then came the tiny fresh green leaves from the sides of the stems and it grew dark green leaves for a month.
Feeding it after winter helps to give healthy blooms during spring and summer. You may add ready mixes available in plant nursery to encourage healthy blooms.
Tips for flowering in mogra plant- avoid over watering the mogra plant, it likes firm soil. Fertilizer must be added approximately a   month before full summer sets in to enjoy healthy blooms.Trim the shoots to encourage healthy stem growth on the plant, bush shape,  otherwise the mogra plant stem will grow lanky and you will get weak small flowers.

Meanwhile there is color in the garden, red yellow canna plant blooms, peace lily with huge snake hood like blooms and of course roses everywhere!,the amaryllis has also thrown a big stem, expecting  huge red healthy blooms, The deep red canna plant sure steals the show with its attractive bright red vermillon blooms but in fragrances  mogra tops the list.
All the Best!
