Sizing guide


Gardenia Radicans, commonly known as dwarf gardenia or groundcover gardenia, is a charming and compact evergreen shrub. Native to China, it is admired for its glossy, dark green leaves and exquisite, highly fragrant white flowers that bloom from spring to early summer. The plant typically reaches a height of 30-60cm with a spread of 60 to 90 cm, making it an excellent choice for borders, low hedges, or as a ground cover.

To grow Gardenia Radicans successfully, choose a location with well-draining soil that receives partial shade to protect it from intense sunlight. Keep the soil consistently moist but avoid overwatering, as excessive moisture may lead to root rot. Gardenia Radicans thrives in warm and humid climates, but it can also be grown in containers in colder regions and moved indoors during winter. Use a balanced fertilizer specifically formulated for acid-loving plants to enhance its growth and bloom. Prune the plant after flowering to maintain its compact shape and remove any dead or diseased branches.
Ensure proper care, and you'll be rewarded with the delightful fragrance and beautiful appearance of Gardenia Radicans, bringing elegance and serenity to your garden or landscape.

Highly rated form of gardenia because of its dwarf like habit.  Slightly narrower foliage than other gardenia forms, it has the same sweet fragrance and glossy green foliage gardenias as famed for.  Use in pots or as a low groundcover in front of taller gardenia forms.
