We both love the scent of this incredibly beautiful flower. My late Mom carried them in her bridal bouquet. They can literally fill a room with their scent.
At the nursery where I bought the huge plant, the lady told me to give it "full sun and lots of water."
The other morning, about ready to come downstairs, something wonderful perfumed the air. I came down, went into the kitchen, and there, on the table, was a single, lovely gardenia in a glass holder. It was the plant's first blossom and hubs picked it, found the vase, and put it on the table.
The whole plant , stationed outside on the side porch, is looking a lot better. She probably was just squished inside that other planter. You can imagine how happy we are!
