|Design Ideas||With its fine texture and traveling habit, this Gardenia is a wonderful scented groundcover. Use it to cover unsightly bare ground in shaded gardens and between larger flowering shrubs and trees. Good on mounds and at home in a naturalized woodland setting.|
|Care||Thrives in organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Handle with care when transplanting; gardenia roots are best undisturbed. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Apply an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Prune to maintain size and shape.|
