Some new photos:

Tahitian Gardenia  ( Gardenia taitensis )  known as “Tiare Flower” in the islands.  This is a great plant for our sunny, coastal conditions.  Steady bloomer of sweetly fragrant white pinwheel flowers approx 4″ in diameter. Leaves are dark green and glossy-  large and tough.

This flower is very important in Tahitian culture, where it is worn behind the ear and made into oils and shampoos.

Hard to find, yet a good plant for the Space Coast.  I’ve been growing it for over 12 years in my garden- it’s one of my all time favorites.  Exotica Tropicals is fully stocked with Tahitian Gardenia at the moment!
