Blooms from our gardenia, floating in water...floating fragrance throughout the house
The gardenia, named in honor of Dr. Alexander Garden (1730-1791.) A Scottish-born physician and naturalist who lived in Charleston, SC (1752-1783) where he collected and studied native species.
Interestingly, the gardenia is not one of them...and not even an American species. It is native to the tropical regions of Africa, southern Asia and Oceania.
I'm just thankful it thrives here in small town South Carolina
