    that just because a plant lives in full sun that the buds / flowers will be just as forgiving. It was more a function of the mid to upper 90's as the buds matured that SCORCHED them. :cry: not the full sun, because for the last 3 years it has bloomed just fine in the same location.
    The plant is a now mature C. Hawaiian Variable, this years canes are over 2 feet tall

    lesson learned and though the flowers will be fugly they still smell fantastic.
