Rare African Thunbergia Gardenia Trees

Recommended Posts


I have a forest of 14 of these tropical beauties in large containers that I started from seed over 20 years ago.  The flowers are super fragrant like Plumeria and the 5' - 6' trees are loaded with seed pods.  San Diego Botanical Garden has a large specimen and I am sure SD Zoo has these plants, but I have never found any for sale at local nurseries or online that are larger than 1 gal.

$275. each      pick up in Vista CA      Gardenia thunbergia | Plantz Africa

      Does anyone know what these agaves are? I thought they were both Agave americana but now I think these might both be different species. I’ll need to get a better picture of the variegated one tomorrow.

      Hi everyone, I’ve been here a while but never posted much just taking advice from posts and admiring other gardens and palm collections! I’ve been working on my garden now for 4 years, when we purchased the property it was full of dead almond trees and we had to get a tractor in to clear the plot and access the house. It’s still very young garden and being so big it takes some doing but I’m hoping it will start to fill in as it matures. I thought I would load some photos as it is now. If you would like to see the progress I have an Instagram account dedicated to gardening which is TropicalGardenSpain.  

      Would love people to comment what palms I am missing here! Climate zone 10a we don’t have frosts but temperatures can drop briefly to 0c for an hour or 2 coldest nights in winter but days can be up to 15-20c and we have dry winters and summers. Watering the garden and keeping on top of it is the toughest jobs and one I will be tackling this year!
