This beautiful white flower is growing on a lovely bush in my yard, along with many other blooms on the bush. Best known for their fragrant white flowers, gardenias are heat-loving evergreen shrubs that have become a gardening symbol in the Southeast US. Flowering is from about mid-spring to mid-summer. Gardenias are native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, southern Asia, Australasia and Oceania.
I hope you enjoy my gardenia!
