Saturday, December 4, 2010 The Gardenias

Gardenia, Los Angeles, Saturday, December 4, 2010

December in Los Angeles means gardenias in bloom, and there are variations. Gardenia is a genus with a hundred forty-two species, all slightly different, all of the coffee family, Rubiaceae. And even if they're everywhere out here in December, they're not native they come from the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and such places. But we love them - Billie Holiday wore gardenias in her hair, and called them her trademark. They're pretty cool. And by the way, Linnaeus named them after Dr. Alexander Garden (1730-1791) a Scottish-born American naturalist. That's cool too.
