|Mature Size||Grows to 4 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide.|

|Design Ideas||With its low, dense growth, this Gardenia is a favorite for limited space. Mounding habit is complementary in Asian-inspired gardens and on mounds with boulders where it appears to spill down a slope. Best planted close to outdoor living spaces in heavy ceramic pots or raised planters to enjoy the lovely fragrance. Keep away from big bushy shrubs which can overwhelm this smaller Gardenia.|
|Companion Plants||Fuchsia (Fuchsia); Azalea (Azalea); Daphne (Daphne); Camellia (Camellia); Agapanthus (Agapanthus)|
|Care||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.|
