    This has happened once before in the 27 years we have owned this apparently rare plant Dracaena Surculosa Punctulata "Sierra Leone" which would make it about 30 years old now. It seems to be a winter flowerer akthough as it is a native of the rainforests of Cameroon it must flower during their dry season. Anyhow this year it started flowering at the beginning of June with buds appearing earlier & the buds were all spent & finished opening by mid-July, Their short-living flowers open during the night hours & are usually finished by daylight & close up. They emit a strong pleasant fragrance. 

    Here are many photos of this mass flowering.

    Thank you Big Billy. Good to hear from you. Do hope all is well with you & your wife. Yes we do love this plant which has responded well to some belated TLC after many years of neglect. Luckily it seems to be hardy as it doesn't grow readily from cuttings as I have discovered.
