Gardenia -- Mother had Daddy plant gardenias under all the bedroom windows in Macon.  Back then, we didn't have air conditioning and humid summers were miserable.   We had burglar bars on all the first story windows so we could leave the windows wide open at night, and an attic fan to draw cool night air -- and the scent of gardenias -- through the house.  I still adore them.
