Hello,

Do you ship tiare tahitian seeds to Europe?
I am looking for these seeds for 4/5 years from now but havenīt found someone who ships to Europe.

Just to rectify the previous comment :

Gardenia taitensis can come with 5, 6, 7, 8 petals.
Some twin flowers can even come with 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 petals, but in this case, it is a malformation.

Most of the web sites and litterature agree on the fact that gardenia taitensis flowers are sterile. It is not true. Most of the flowers will not give a fruit, but it happens !

I am proud to inform you that I recently succeeded in producing viable fresh gardenia taitensis seeds from my plantation in Tahiti (95% germination) !

Feel free to contact us for more information,

Kind regards from Tahiti

I bought a Tiare Tahiti plant from Top Tropicals a couple weeks ago, and it's doing great! I was amazed at the box it came in, it was wrapped very secure, but didn't have any broken stems or even bent leaves. I potted it according to their recommendations. It now is making flowers like crazy and has lots of new growth already! It's very healthy, and I would recommend Top Tropicals for your tropical plant needs. JT

Your name for this plant is incorrect - "Tiare Tahiti" is not a regular multi-level petal gardenia. What makes it unique is the six single -petal. Please refer to any Tahitian website to conform this. Tiare Tahiti originates here & is very special to those of us from French Polynesia - our national flower. The gardenia pictured on your catalog is beautiful and unique in its own way I'm sure, but it is NOT Tiare Tahiti. It is misleading of you to say this.
