The Radican Gardenia will charm you time after time with its delicious citrus aroma and abundant creamy-white blooms that create a dramatic display!
The Radicans Gardenia features the same decadent fragrance as the larger gardenias. Its dwarf, rounded spread makes it especially excellent in low borders or as a ground-cover plant.
This spreading evergreen shrub has horizontal branching and can grow 2-3 feet tall and wide at maturity. This miniature gardenia has beautiful petite white flowers that bloom in the spring and early summer. The dark green leaves contrast nicely when the blooms fill your garden.
If the evergreen Gardenia shrub receives regular fertilization it will maintain a dark green foliage color through spring and fall. Sometimes yellow leaves appear when lacking in soil nutrition.
Although tolerant to a wide range of soil types, the gardenia performs best in moisture retentive, acidic soils. Can be grown in full sun to partial shade, but will maintain it’s fragrance from the blooms if provided with shade during the sunniest times of the year.
The dwarf Gardenia Radicans is easy to maintain and is even drought resistant and heat tolerant, and also resistant to pests and disease. Perfect for USDA growing zones 7-10.
