Dan - that is one symmetrical bloom. Lovely color.
Donna - I can't believe your Dr. Moy is blooming already. Mines have never bloomed in the 5 years that I have had them. I transplanted a few to a sunnier spot and keeping my fingers crossed for at least one bloom this year.
rob this is the first set of flowers in july they all dried up so i cut them back to the ground. there were already babies coming up around them so i am not sure if by cutting the older ones it gave them more energy or not.
roberta/bward i can only imagine the smell. i never thought of kelp. a neighbor goes to starbucks and gets all their coffee grinds for free and puts them all over her gardenias and they are incredible.
