Design Ideas: One of the few Gardenia that takes full sun, but best to plant with a little protection from reflected heat of hardscape. Use as foundation planting or an accent shrub and place it close to outdoor living spaces to appreciate its heavenly fragrance. Ideal for sunny courtyards and townhouse gardens.

Thrives in organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Handle with care when transplanting; gardenia roots are best undisturbed. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.

History

Intense fragrance has kept gardenia in the perfume trade and it is still among the most popular flowers for corsages. It's an old practice to cut gardenia flowers without stem and float them on water in shallow ceramic bowls set on the coffee table to release their fragrance.
