Sizing guide

Gardenia Florida is an exceptional variety producing large, double milky white flowers from late spring and through the warmer months. Excellent species to consider for pots or as an entrance garden bed for their beautiful scent, or prune as a standard for an excellent specimen.  Plant with full sun or part shade, with protection from frost. For best results grow in a warm position in well drained, hummus rich soil.

Gardenia florida, commonly known as Cape Jasmine, is a compact evergreen shrub with glossy, dark green leaves and fragrant, creamy-white, pinwheel-shaped flowers. Typically reaching 2 to 3 feet in height and spread, it's well-suited for gardens and containers. To grow Gardenia florida in Australia, choose a well-drained, acidic soil enriched with organic matter. Plant in a partly shaded location with morning sun and afternoon shade. Water consistently to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during the flowering season. Mulch around the base to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilize with a balanced, acidic plant food in spring and summer. Prune after flowering to maintain shape. With proper care, Gardenia florida thrives in Australia's climate, offering beautiful blooms and delightful fragrance.
