New blooms

I returned to TSV on Monday to find my plants growing a bit better thanks to the recent rains here.
There are several new blooms this week in TSV. Firstly the American Sun dahlia is blooming. Surprisingly, in the clump of yellow blooms, there's a "red stripped one".

Secondly this NOID shrub. I planted it several months ago and these are its first flowers.

But the most longed-for blooms are from the Hoya Square leaf. I really love the white blooms and the scent of the plant. Heaven!

Hello Ha Xuan, the dahlias are beautiful! I like the red stripped one very much. Some imapatiens sold here has these colour combination also. The way you described the scent of the hoya, made me smelt the fragrance here as well ;-D Btw, that blue flower looks like Thunbergia erecta

Thanks, Steph, for the ID of Thunbergia.
