Gardenia jasminoides Cape Jasmine
Native to China, Gardenia's evoke images of exotic, sweet-scented flowers and soft, island breezes. Glossy, dark green leaves provide a luxuriant backdrop to heavily-scented, double, creamy-white blooms. Grown in dappled shade, Gardenia's like well amended and well drained acid soil and will reach a height of 4-6 feet. Blooms are long lasting and are ideal for cut flowers. Hardy to 20 F. and in zones 8-10. Pkt. 25
