    Is that one 'All Seasons' Denny? I have a few of them and the heavy Gardenia scent during the main flowering season almost carries me away.

    i do miss me some gardenias! we have all kinds of gardenias and gardenia like things around here, but nothing beats a big ol bush of southern gardenias...
    i never understood why they dont grow more of them around here! that and sweet olive trees... they have plenty of both but they like to grow them only as little hedgerows or at least as low to the ground as they can... huh...who knows

    Nicole,
    Believe it or not,I just took a branch from my mom's Gardenia and stuck it in the ground, about 7 years ago.

    Scrubber,
    I don't think it is an "all Seasons",because it only blooms once a year,in May and June.
