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.
There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden . Learn More
