A New Addition To The Garden
India Carnation, Crape Jasmine, Pinwheel Flower
Tabernaemontana divaricata 'Flore Pleno'
Wonderfully fragrant clusters of pure white 1.5" frilly double blooms are borne throughout summer on this large shrub or small tree. Large glossy green tropical foliage. The fragrance intensifies as night approaches. More information may be found at: http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/oc/freepubs/pdf/OF-1.pdf
Light: Sun to part shade or high light indoors
The NG gave me a new gifty to play with .
We haven't gotten in to as much trouble this year as we have before ....for example :
SU : " NG...!!! You have to stop ! "
NG : " What ?"
SU : " Every time you get a wild hair to hit one of the nurseries, whether Pol is with you or not ...you drag stuff home and them I have to dig another damn hole."
NG : " So the problem is what , exactly ?"
We 've done more transplanting, re-potting , trading and so forth this year.
I had one open spot below the bedroom window that had one rose that just didn't make it through all of the weather this year , so NG said she had a plant ( hell....it's damn near a small tree) that needed to be in the ground.
Damn Skippy..I'm your girl.
" Oh Honey...can you grab the shovel ??"
It's gorgeous and I am going to try my best...now as long as he doesn't object to the jasmine on the other side of the house by Big Red...
" Oh honey ......"
