Gardenia Florida

Gardenia Florida (Gardenia augusta ‘Florida’) is an outstanding evergreen shrub with extremely fragrant double white blooms with glossy green foliage.

Gardenias make an ideal specimen or potted plant with their dark green glossy foliage and masses of blooms making them a real feature.  These are equally good planted as a hedge as they can be clipped into shape if required.

A beautiful addition to a cottage or scented garden. Flowers from late spring into summer and autumn. Prefers warmer climates but can be grown in cooler climates if planted in a protected position against a wall. Frost tender so must have protection in a cooler climate.

Category:

The glossy green leaves and fragrant, creamy-white flowers make gardenias a standout feature, whether used in the garden, as a hedge, grown as a standard, or adorning a pot.

Conditions

Gardenias like a warm spot with dappled light, or morning sun. They prefer an acidic soil enriched with composted organic matter. In pots use a potting mix formulated for azaleas and camellias.

 

Care

Feed with a specialised fertiliser for acid-loving plants every 2-3 months from late winter to late-autumn. Add a regular watering with seaweed solution to the regime.
