Thank you Etienne,
This is another of my bargin buys. I've had it for two years but it didn't flower last year. Instead it really grew! Stephanotis floribunda is also known as the Madagascar Jasmine. In the UK it has to be treated as a houseplant. It likes a bright spot away from direct sun . It needs it's compost kept moist during the summer months then less in the winter. It also need constant cool conditions in the winter, so in many respects it needs to be treated like a clivia!
