Frostproof Gardenia

The Frostproof Gardenia bears shiny, dark, thick medium-sized green leaves that are considered evergreen and contrast nicely with the intensely fragrant, double white flowers that bloom in late spring and through the early summer. The flower buds, that set in late July and early August and carry through winter, are resistant to late spring frosts that can damage them. This is an excellent choice for a lower-growing hedge or foundation planting. This gardenia can thrive with more direct sun than most other varieties and prefers well drained, acidic soils. When the soil is not acid enough, the plants cannot absorb needed iron appropriately and this can lead to a yellowish cast of the leaves known as Iron Chlorosis.

It is resistant to maritime exposure and salt-laden winds. It can grow right next to the sea and when grown into hedge form, can give good wind protection. Stays evergreen in mild winter climates and will tolerate all but extremely soggy soils. It is as happy in full sun as it is in deep shade making it an all-around great choice for many landscape applications.
