Hardy Gardenia flowering

Hardy Gardenia flowering (Gardenia jasminoides (Cape jasmine))

Much smaller flowers than the tender one, but the scent is just as strong.

Is this one in the open ground or still in a pot, I can see the cyclamen along side it which led me to think you planted it out.If so i have been coddling mine to much.

It smells nicer than the houseplant one Alexandramou.
Yes Brian they are both in the garden and both have flowers on. I will repot one soon and keep it overwinter in the greenhouse just to hedge my bets..........;o)

Homebird I have three gardenia plants outdoors...all in pots. I'm planting a new one in the back garden this year. I'm after one like yours now, especially if it smells nicer!!!

The scent from this one is not so cloying as the others Dotty.
Lucky you Alexandramou having the climate to grow them outside all year.
