Just a few for today. Our Frost Proof gardenia did put out one bloom, it smells so good. Avedon

J. Carpenter reject crossed with Chance Encounter.

Golliwog Quads. The sun is backlighting the flowers.

Our second Buttered Popcorn, a better bloom than the first one

Siloam Double Classic popped out 11 blooms today.

Frost Proof gardenia bloom--can't wait for this to really get going.

I wish I could sniff your gardenia myself but it sure looks like a beauty. That first daylily bloom is definately my favorite today.

Love all three, but the 1st is a real beauty. Your Gardenia is pretty, my whole yard smells like gardenia. My old shrub is getting ratty though, I may have to take it out and replace it with a cutting. sharon

I love the seedling! The Golliwog blooms look so pretty backlit by the sun.

I LOVE that seedling too. I still like GOLLIWOG and the multi blooms opening.
Gardenia.....if only I could grow it here.

Siloam Double Classic is quite the bloom machine I love it, your seedling also is a favorite. Don't you just love the gardenia's I have a few big bushes that were here when we bought the house and when they bloom the scent is spectacular.

A friend of mine "kills" a new gardenia every year. It's our personal joke. They just don't do well for her - in ground or in pots - doesn't matter. I gave up trying a long time ago. What a shame. It's probably one of my favorite scents. Lucky you....SDC, with all those scapes and lovely pastel color is my favorite daylily picture of this group....Maryl
