Special to the Democrat-Gazette/JANET B. CARSON "Autumn Joy" sedum is a tall growing sedum and winter hardy in Arkansas.

Q I have three miniature gardenia bushes that are blooming for the second time. I have been around gardenias all my life and have never known gardenias to bloom twice.

Or is it that there are some varieties of miniature gardenias that bloom twice?
