Forum home Problem solving


I live in Bangladesh.i have collected few seeds of this flowering plant in 2014. only 1 germinate. I keep in medium size pot. It was almost dying few weeks before but again leaves came out. I decide to put in large pot now. Parent tree is now about 12 feet height. I never saw flower without Bees.Very sweet smell. But do not know its name. If some one can give me local name, then i can try to find rest from internet. Thanks to all.

    most, but not all, the forum users are based in UK. 
    I guess most have never seen this plant. If you do find a name, can you tell us please? It's beautiful.
