Miniature Gardenia (Grafted)

Gardenia jasminoides 'Radicans' (Grafted)

Petite white flowers with a lovely classic gardenia scent, on lush, finely textured, glossy evergreen foliage. The superior rootstock gives it excellent resistance to nematodes as well as the ability to thrive in poor soils and easily take up soil nutrients. Place near entrances, courtyards, or outdoor living spaces to best enjoy the fragrance.
