Very slow growing plant this is, i purchased two yrs ago and have only had a show of flowers twice, and that was only two buds at a time. They did smell delightful though, a heady powdery smell.
The first year i had it positioned on the patio away from the house, but this last year brought it up to outside the back door as the leaves started falling and i felt it was too open to the wind and cold air. Despite it only gaining half its size , when we have frost and snow i put a plastic carrier over it and it has somehow survived. I'm wondering if you need a greenhouse for this plant to flourish.

smaller than shown
Had just bought the Wollemi pine and so was pleased with it that I adventured back in to QVC plants. Mine was much smaller than the one shown on TV but despite that I planted it out and tended to it lovingly. It even managed one flower which was very scented.
Unfortunately, it didn't make it though the winter so I don't feel I can give it much more than 2 stars even though it was such a pretty plant.
Perhaps others will have more luck as it is a lovely looking plant with exotic smelling flowers.

A pathetic specimen
I purchased this plant in 2008, and although very very small when it arrived, it seemed to be just about surviving ok, and even grew a couple of leaves, but the slight frost last February 2009 killed it off completely. For me yet another Richard Jackson disaster.
