Gardenia blooms

If you are living or visiting any southern cities this time of the year you can not miss the gardenia plants covered in their white fragrantful blossoms. Used by many as border plants when they are in full bloom you only see a full mound of pure white beautiful blooms with thick petals. To enjoy their flowers there are dwarf gardenia plants that can grow in a pot placed indoors or out .

When it comes to size the magnolia tree is jaw dropping gigantic. They can grow to seventy feet. This prehistoric tree with cereal bowl size blooms adds a gentle fragrant to the evening air.
