HI MIke,

Just wanted to show you the Gardenias that were growing in my mothers yard. I took the plants before she moved and I have had beautiful huge and the most fragrant blooms of any Gardenia ever...

Thought of you and I wanted you to know I was rooting yours and one for Robert!!

Look at the size of the blooms compared to my hands..

My mother always called them "The Old Fashioned Gardenia"

I have two trees in the ground and some smaller trees that line the back of my house. The fragrance is so intense, my DH has to move them sometimes when I have them in a vase here in the house.. I just love them!!! Must be those allergies again!! Lol...

Thought you would like to see what is growing for you !!!

Cheers!!!

Laura

"Gorgeous Laura!" said the Gardenias Killer. Better keep those things away from me. But they should be safe for another year since I already killed my quota for the year. LOL

I about kill two a year usually around Mother's day. Hey you can't blame a girl for trying though. :)

Robert and Mike will be thrilled!! You have an amazing green thumb!

Laura,
Happy Birthday again!! I love Gardenias, the large white flowers, the super shiny leaves one of the most gorgeous flowers. Actually I had 6 Tree Gardenia Topiaries that were at my new house when I moved in a while ago and because of my asthma I had to get rid of them as the perfume would irritate my sinuses. Even with plumies I love the colors, shapes and visuals but really do not smell them as I have issues breathing if the plumies are too strong, thats why I like JJ's plumies as many of them have faint, mild or no scent, but gorgeous colors and shapes.
Thank you for the offer though!!!

Cheers
James

Laura,

I have one gardenia plant that I bought earlier this year. They had to put them at the entrance of a hardware store so the first thing one smelled were these gardenias! I had to take one home after smelling them. The blooms aren't as big as yours.

If you have an extra one for me, I'd love to have it. I'll gladly pay for postage to okc :)

Kenny
