Description

Extremely cold hardy to 0 degrees

Summer Snow® Gardenia is a broadleaf evergreen shrub offering year-round interest. The dense, lustrous dark green foliage looks gorgeous all year long, adding beautiful structure, texture, and color to the landscape. However, gardenias are usually grown for their profuse flowers that bloom over an extended time, from mid-spring through summer. And Summer Snow Gardenia has exceptionally beautiful double blooms that are big, pure white, and highly fragrant with a pungently sweet scent. The flowers attract bees and make exceptional cuts for indoor display. Place cut flowers in a cool spot and mist frequently with water. Short-stemmed flowers can be floated in shallow bowls or worn as a corsage.

A Gardenia jasminoides, commonly called gardenia or cape jasmine, Summer Snow Gardenia has a dense, upright, rounded habit and a vigorous growth rate. It makes a gorgeous specimen or container plant and is a lovely addition to beds and borders.

Pest resistant and extremely drought tolerant and cold hardy (to 0 degrees), Summer Snow Gardenia prefers part sun to full shade and humus rich, acidic, moist, well-drained soil. Keep the shrub moist until established then water deeply and less frequently as needed during the growing season. Fertilize in spring after blooming using a food for acid-loving plants.
