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.|
