RE: confederate jasmine, chocolate pudding, and stuff

Jim: This looks just like a plant that keeps moving itself all around in
my yard...one year it's in one place, the next in another...the only
place it keeps coming up is through this really ugly shrub that I keep
simply because it is inseparable now from the jasmine...and I'd hate
more than anything to lose this plant...you can smell it the second you
set foot outside my house. Do you know the botanical name of htis plant?

Subject: [CHAT] confederate jasmine, chocolate pudding, and stuff

donna has once again been kind enough to post my pictures. this time
it's <br>the confederate jasmine [trachlospermum jasminoides] covered
pine tree. <br>i'm quite pleased with this display. i have similar ones
working on the two <br>trees adjacent to this one--including one with a
variegated confederate <br>jasmine--and two more in the back yard. <br>


spring is in full glory right now. the jacaranda and royal poinciana
<br>trees are in full bloom, as are the bougainvilleas, ixoras,
gerberas, <br>geraniums, begonias, hibiscuses, allamandas, jatrophas,
and all the bedding <br>plants that survive here--petunias, marigolds,
impatiens, among others. and <br>the caladiums, which died back only a
month or two ago, are poking leaves <br>up everywhere.<br><br>my yard
man--charles wayne babcock, fondly known as chuckie--and his lovely
<br>wife, juanita, were here yesterday. among the many things they did
was <br>prune up the king

sago. the king has always had one pup, but now that chuck <br>has
removed the old fronds, we have discovered that it has two more pups.
<br>so it's going to be a four-stem clump in a few years, and i find
that exciting.<br><br>juanita limbed up the black sapote seedling, and
that's when we discovered <br>it had set fruit for the first time. for
those who do not know the black <br>sapote, it's a mexican relative of
our native persimmon. a very handsome <br>tree with large glossy dark
green leaves.<br><br>it is also called the "chocolate pudding" tree
because the fruit, which <br>look somewhat like avocados on the outside,
contain a soft, milk-chocolate <br>colored and pudding-textured flesh
that is sweet and quite tasty. it does <br>not taste like chocolate, but
it has that same kind of dark intoxicating <br>taste [controlling words]
that chocolate has. anyway, i'm happy it has set <br>fruit. it is a
4-year-old seedling, started from a seed i picked up at <br>marie selby
