I Planted What I Was Told Was a Hawaiian Ti Stick
There was an offshoot which has grown to approx. 5 feet. So far so good. Two days ago we started to smell something sweet, but very strong. We located the smell and it is coming from a string of small flowers/blooms at the top of the Ti Palm. I had no idea this plant would produce flowers.
Mature plants produce yellowish or reddish flowers that are sweetly scented, less than a half inch (1.25 cm) across, and clustered in conspicuous 12 in (30 cm) panicles.
