    Was excited to see this as it was the start of a flower on our Dracaena Fragrans Massangeana. 'Happy Plant'  All three stems have them. Never realised that this dracaena actually flowered which is why this took us by surprise. We have had this beautiful plant we admired for its attractive foliage, & which also has air-cleaning abilities as a bonus, for more than ten years. It turns out that to have three flowers is a major plus. 

    The buds.

    A second flower has sprouted. The cold weather has caused many of its beautiful leaves to go yellow & die off.

    The outer end of the third flower stem was accidentally snapped off.

    These are the actual Dracaena Fragrans Massangeana flowers opened up. The rest are buds . They open at night & emit a powerfully strong fragrance. So strong we could not keep it inside while it was still flowering & had to put it out on the front patio.. The flowers close up during the day.

    Dracaena fragrans massangeana flowers. They exude large drops of nectar even before they open.

    Taken in the late evening when most of the flowers on this dracaena fragrans massangeana branch were open.  The beautiful fragrance is so strong. Wasn't able to get all three flower stems in the one picture unfortunately.

    The flowers are now nearly all dead so we shall be able to bring the Happy Plant - Dracaena fragrans massangeana back inside.
