There are numerous gardenia bushes to be found throughout Monmouth’s gardens.  “A swirl of blinding white, the gardenia’s waxy blossom is at once pure and sensual. So intoxicating is its sweetness that raising a bloom to your nose invites you to swoon. Intolerant of Northern winters, the gardenia saves its charms for the South?for prom girls’ corsages; blooms floating in birdbaths; and heaven-scented, lazy evenings spent chatting on the porch.”  From “A Brief History of the Gardenia” – by Southern Living.

The azalea is native to Japan, and received its name because it was discovered in Asia. There are numerous, incredible azalea bushes surrounding Monmouth’s garden pathways and front lawn, which you can see as you drive up the great entranceway.  It has been said that the azalea is the number one “must have” plant in the South.
