Frost Proof Gardenia
Gardenia jasminoides 'Frost Proof'
New Frost Proof Gardenias are unaffected by cold snaps and thrive on neglect. They adapt to a variety of soil conditions... do great in full sun or partial shade... and resist insects and disease. Even deer leave them alone.
They’re just as beautiful as they are tough. You get velvety white flowers that bloom in pairs.
They start blooming in late spring. These flowers last longer after being cut than old Gardenia varieties.
Frost Proof also makes a great evergreen foundation hedge. They are bushy and well branched. They look great pruned or left natural.
Plant several for a fragrance you can smell from a distance.
