Help pls. -- will gardenias flourish in San Francisco?

posted by: maiolo on 06.07.2009 at 08:58 pm in California Gardening Forum

I live near 17th Ave & Rivera in San Francisco, CA. Not quite Sunset district, but pretty darn close to it. Sorry, but I'm not quite sure what zone I'm in, it's very confusing :(

I was hoping to buy First Love or Aimee gardenias for my yard, which is 1/3 day full sun, the rest shade. Will these grow in your opinion?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Recommendations pls - Antiques resembling DA's Juliet & Patience

About a third down from the below page is an image of David Austin proudly displaying a garden trug filled with Juliet and Patience. I called their US distributor and got a very short and abrupt woman scowling at me saying "no, no, no" to every alternative I was asking.

So, since those roses are so gorgeous, I would love to own something similar to it at least. I live in the Parkside district in San Francisco, CA. USDA zone 9, Sunset zone 17, i believe.

Do you have any recommendations please for any antique roses resembling David Austin's Juliet and Patience? Thank you.

Here is a link that might be useful: Juliet and Patience at the Chelsea Flower Show
