LOL, Kell. That was in 2008. I still have this one in the ground, and I love it so much. It has big large gardenia blooms with a great fragrance. It is one of my husband's favorite flowers also, which is good because that means he won't butcher it by trimming!

I tired a gardenia once and killed it!

Try again, Kell! It must have been young. Start with a big one from a nursery!
