Gardenia jasminoides 'Frostproof'

Gardenia jasminoides 'Frostproof'

My favorite of the Gardenias I'm growing, although not fond of the name of this miniature variety. Sure it is great marketing for gardeners in northern climes. Small scale and low growing to about 14" with narrow pointy leaves. Has been in continuous bloom since May providing a constant display of fragrant flowers. Foliage evergreen with very few yellow leaves produced. Have a couple of these potted on my patio in a mix of homemade compost, Danish peat moss and long fiber.

Pink jasmine on a rainy day - Jasminum polyanthum

Pink jasmine on a rainy day - Jasminum polyanthum

The first flowering of Pink jasmine in my neighborhood. This fragrant flowering vine blooms mid winter through spring in Southern California. Seen here twining downward on a fence. The fragrance is not as pure or pleasant as that of other jasmines and can be overwhelming when blooming abundantly. Hardy to USDA zone 9a.

The Evening Garden: Flowers and Fragrance from Dusk till Dawn

It is a great irony that garden books are filled with sunny, colorful photos taken at midday, while the gardeners who tend them are usually away at work. Peter Loewer's The Evening Garden is an exciting revelation of the delights to be found in a garden that is planned and planted for evening enjoyment, from night-bloomers to fragrant orchids and wildflowers.

This book runs the gamut from technical considerations, like how the eye sees color at night, to essential discussions of plants with night-time value, whether it be fragrance, bloom, or the ability to attract moths. There are chapters dedicated to night-blooming daylilies, evening primroses and other nocturnal wildflowers, water gardens of the evening, moonlight gardens, and fireflies and glowworms. All are made eminently readable with quotes from past botanical writings, and the elegant text is graced with 160 beautiful line drawings.

This is an indispensable book for any gardener who plans to venture out to the garden after sundown - or who just likes to read about it.
