Gardenia jasminoides Frostproof is an exceptional variety of Gardenia or Cape Jasmine that stands out for its resilience to colder temperatures and enchanting, fragrant flowers. This hardy shrub brings the classic beauty of Gardenias to gardens where traditional varieties might struggle.
Reaching a manageable size of about 1 metre in height and spread, Gardenia Frostproof is perfect for small gardens, borders, or as a fragrant addition to patios and outdoor living areas. Its compact, bushy habit makes it an excellent choice for creating low hedges or as a foundation plant.
The true allure of this plant lies in its large, velvety white flowers that bloom profusely from late spring to early summer. These flowers are visually striking and emit a rich, sweet fragrance that can fill an entire garden space, making it a favourite among gardeners who appreciate sensory experiences. Its glossy, dark green leaves provide a beautiful backdrop to its flowers and maintain their vibrancy throughout the year, adding evergreen interest to the landscape.
This variety is notably more cold-tolerant than traditional Gardenias, making it suitable for gardeners in cooler regions. It thrives in well-drained, acidic soil and prefers a location that receives full to partial sunlight. Regular watering, especially during dry spells, and a layer of mulch to maintain soil moisture and temperature, will keep it flourishing.
