First Love Gardenia (Grafted)

Gardenia jasminoides 'Aimee' (Grafted onto G. thunbergia)

SKU
03757
Wonderfully fragrant, large, white, double blooms are larger than any other gardenia and the first to bloom. A superb evergreen landscape accent or container plant for courtyards or patio. This superior grafted selection thrives due to rootstock that is nematode resistant, tolerates poor soils, and more readily takes up soil nutrients.
