Gardenia augusta 'Florida'
Large, highly perfumed, double milky white flowers, which emerge from Spring to early Autumn. Glossy deep green oval leaves. Rounded evergreen shrub.
Gardenias grow best in a warm protected position in a well drained, rich humus soil. Prune to keep compact in late winter. Gardenias will benefit from applications of compost and fertiliser.
Plant near entertaining areas to enjoy the beautiful fragrance of the flowers. Grow in pots near windows. Use in a formal landscape with other traditional favourites like Azalea Alba Magnifica and Camellia Setsugekka.
