Magnificent flowers and charmingly sweet aromas are what you get with the Southern Living Plant Collection’s Scentamazing Gardenia. This stunning evergreen shrub refuses to disappoint and easily becomes a fixture in any landscape! The petite dark-green rounded leaves provide the stage for the fragrantly creamy white single-form blooms to truly pop. These crisp, snowy blooms feature six to eight petals and a golden center with six light brown prongs reaching towards the edges of the bloom. The fragrance is nearly universally recognized and unapologetically bold, featuring seductive, intoxicating tones that will remind you of southern summer nights. These classically scented blooms are ideal for usage as cut flowers for fragrant floral displays. Expect the Scentamazing Gardenia to begin blooming in mid to late spring and to continue to re-bloom from summer to autumn, therefore keeping your landscape in bloom for much of the year.
The Scentamazing Gardenia is naturally compact and their reliable growth-habit makes pruning unnecessary. The Scentamazing only reaches 3.5′ tall and 3-4′ W, so you don’t need to worry about it conquering your garden. The glossy emerald green foliage is evergreen and densely foliated making it a champion in any landscape all year long. The stems are a sturdy, yet attractive soft brown and accent perfectly with the light-catching foliage.
Plant the Scentamazing in well-drained garden soil and fertilize once yearly in spring with a slow-release gardenia fertilizer.
