Star Jasmine and Gardenias.

during my blog / garden hiatus, the star jasmine bloomed, as did two previously unidentified gardenia bushes. the gardenia blooms didn't last long, but the flowers were very attractive and the scent was nearly overwhelming.

at the same time, the star jasmine was covered in tiny, cloyingly sweet blooms for a bit more than a week. a very nice smell, but almost too much - i think the high humidity we were experiencing at the time contributed to the way the smell of the gardenias and jasmine hung in the air.

now i need to learn how to prune the gardenias.

I was given a gardenia bush for Mother's day. We live in TN will it survive winters
