Tabernaemontana pachysiphon (Shrub Form)

Cinnamon Gardenia

This tropical shrub has much confusion in it's name. Regardless, it is a wonderful tropical shrub with extreme fragrant white pinwheel flowers that have reflexed petals. Some say it smells like Cinnamon, but it certainly has a delightful spicy sweet, maybe my favorite. Full sun or part shade, regular feeding with amended soil are best. Can grow to 6', evergreen, doesn't like temperatures below 50 degrees. Even though it's not listed anywhere I've been able to find, there are different forms of the plant, some shrubby, some more tree-like, I'm assuming they are true from seed, time will tell, the fragrance is the same in all. In coastal California, it's best in a warm greenhouse, high heat makes for more flowers. Popular in Hawaii and Florida. Synonyms: Pagiantha dichotoma, T. corymbosa 'Pinwheel'
