Gardening Guide Gardenias River2u.com
Overview
Gardenias are evergreen shrubs with beautiful glossy green leathery leaves and 2 to 4 inch waxy, fragrant white flowers. They can grow up to 6 feet high and wide when they are planted outdoors in areas that rarely experience frost. Gardenias can be used as single specimens or planted in groups. They also make wonderful container houseplants. Gardenias are excellent winter time gifts.

The following should be considered when buying gardenias:
  • Look for healthy, dark green leaves and vigorous shallow roots.
  • Know how much sun to plant in. Gardenias need partial shade in very hot places but prefer more sun in cooler areas.
  • Gardenias like moist, acidic soil that has been enriched with organic matter such as peat moss. They need to be fertilized during the growing season.
Remember to plant gardenias near outdoor seating areas and walkways to enjoy their heavenly scent.
