Gardenias are A-Bloomin'

The previous owners of my home had a brilliant landscaping idea. They planted gardenias flanking both sides of the front door in an alcove area. According to most gardening books, these plants shouldn't have survived in this location. However, they survive and thrive. This time of year the first blooms of the season are starting to pop. Beside being a visual treat the fragrance is intoxicating. An added benefit of being in an alcove is that fragrance is captured and is concentrated.
