The sweet smell of the South can be found in gardenia blossoms!
We proudly offer a wide selection of gardenias to buy online. From the more traditional Frostproof Gardenia to the August Beauty Gardenia, these fragrant white blooms are sure to turn heads when planted in your landscape.
If you are looking for something a little different… check out the Kleims Hardy Gardenia for the same, tantalizing scent but with flatter, wider flower blossoms. The dwarf Radican Gardenia can also provide the same look of a gardenia plant but with a smaller, denser size.It only gets up to 2-3 feet tall and wide.
The evergreen foliage of these dense flowering shrubs will keep your landscape looking green even through winter. Plant these gardenia shrubs across the United States in USDA growing zones 7-10. Check your zones before purchasing because some plant hardiness zones will vary. They are more adaptable in the southern states but some varieties can handle some cold hardiness.
Gardenias prefer full sun to partial shade and can benefit from having some of both if you live in a warmer area with hot afternoon sun. They need acidic soil to thrive and produce flowers. A pH of 5.0 to 6.0 is ideal. Use a sulfurous additive to lower pH.
These shrubs will have bloom period throughout spring, summer, and fall. Deadheading spent blossoms will encourage new growth to show up.
Check out the Gardenia Grow Guide for information on choosing, planting, and growing your gardenia plants.
