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.
