Jasmine and Gardenia blooming

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. I know growing gardenia's and jasmine in my area is no big gardening feat, but I'm still pleased. My Confederate Jasmine and Star Jasmine are blooming big and so are my gardenia's.

My confederate covers the whole back fence-

This gardenia was planted here in 1984!

Here's my poor Night Blooming Jasmine. It was probably 15-20' high, it towered over the fence and was bigger than the arbor vitea in the background. After it froze, I (hopefully)cut it back to fence top but the limbs were dead. It's coming back now.

You having amazing plants there! That gardenia is of envy, so lush...
I suggest everyone get a Confederate Jasmine if they are having troubles with gardenias. The Confederate Jasmine is so easy to grow and you can forget to water it or overwater it. It doesn't seem fussy about soil or anything. But it will still reward one with so many fragrant flowers. It is a little like the scent of a gardenia.

Amazing!!!! No matter where they grow...

Great job and thanks for sharing. I can smell them from here...
Even if grown outdoors, you have to know what you are doing to grow them so well!!
