fragrant flower plants - CAPE JASMINE
CAPE JASMINE GARDENIA JASMINOIDES fragrant 20 seeds
Gardenia jasminoides or Common Gardenia or Cape Jasmine is an evergreen shrub, which grows to a height of 2 to 6 feet. Spread is about the same. The foliage of well-fed shrubs is glossy, dark-green, 2 to 4 inches long and half as wide. Depending on the cultivar, the flowers can be either single or double and up to 4 inches in diameter. They are waxy, white and very fragrant. Gardenias require considerable maintenance. Fall or spring is the best time for planting. Plant in light to moderate shade, preferably with minimum competition from tree roots. Gardenias resent root disturbance. They also grow well in pots. Gardenias prefer acid, moist, well-drained soils. A good time to feed gardenias is mid-March, using an acid plant food, fish emulsion or blood meal. Feed the shrubs again in late June to encourage extra flowers on everbloomers or faster growth of young shrubs. Do not fertilize gardenias in the fall. Doing so will stimulate tender growth, which may be killed if the temperature in winter drops below 15 degrees. Gardenias are cold-sensitive and during severe winters can be killed to the ground in the Upstate. Often they regenerate in spring. Prune shrubs after they have finished flowering to remove straggly branches and faded flowers. Water gardenias regularly. Drip-irrigating the shrubs will keep water off the foliage and blossoms and prevents leaf spots. Regular watering is necessary after blooming also to keep the plants in good condition and able to withstand winter weather. The gardenia flowers are highly fragrant. They open over a long period of time, from May through July and make great cut flowers. Hardy zone 7-10
Flowering Corn plant
This is my corn plant -- dracaena fragans. It recently began flowering for the first time in at least a half dozen years. I've got two of these and this is the first time I've seen it flower. It is said that only mature ones flower. It's pretty interesting to see. The stem of flowers started growing a couple weeks ago and this is day two of blooms. The little white flowers last only a day but they are very very fragrant (hence the name).
Miltonia flavescens, Orchids flowering in my greenhouse today.
Miltonia flavescens Got this plant from J & L Orchids in Easton, CT. Lots of fragrant flowers on smallish plant. White with purple/pink striping on lip. Looks pinkish in this pict. due to my sodium lighting and my attempt to filter out the yellow.
