Answer: You may very well have seen flowers from a First Love Gardenia. Creamy-white and boasting the distinctive Rose-like shape that is so exquisite, these flowers open from late spring well into summer -- several weeks earlier than most other Gardenias, and offering a longer season than many! They measure 4 to 5 inches wide and are suffused with an indescribably sweet scent that must be experienced to be appreciated. Plant this shrub on the patio, beside the kitchen window, or in any trafficked spot where the fragrance can be enjoyed by all who pass it. It's no exaggeration to say that a single First Love? perfumes the entire garden!
