Description

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. The seductive, intoxicating scent will remind you of southern summer nights. These classic 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 expect to keep your landscape in bloom for much of the year.

The Scentamazing Gardenia is naturally compact and their reliable growth-habit makes pruning unnecessary. Additionally, the Scentamazing only reaches 3.5′ tall and 3-4′ W, so you don’t need to worry about it crowding 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.

Scentamazing Gardenia Care Tips

Plant the Scentamazing in well-drained garden soil and fertilize once yearly in spring with a slow-release gardenia fertilizer. Otherwise, for organic gardeners, fertilize every 2 months with an organic acidic plant fertilizer.

This gardenia should be planted in full sun to part shade, but this will vary by your location. If you are located in hotter zones, such as the southern United States, you’ll want to plant them somewhere that they will receive morning sun and afternoon shade. If you are located in cooler zones, such as the northern United States, plant them in full sun to help ensure their winter survival.

    I was very pleased at the quickness in receiving my order. The plants appear to be very healthy — the foliage had very little yellow leaves and the root ball was in great shape. I cannot wait for them to bloom to see if they are as fragrant as advertised!

    I was skeptical at first about buying this shrub online. I’ve made other online purchases from other companies and thought the quality for the price was disappointing. However, I was very pleasantly surprised when this shrub arrived. It is a decent size and as healthy as a houseplant. It’s the nicest mall order plant I’ve ever received. I’m just sorry now that some of the other plants I was interested in are no longer available.

    Wow! Out of the box came a deep green healthy plant with flowers growing on it already. Can’t wait to get these (bought 2 of them — each arrived safely and gorgeously) in pots outside the house. Looking forward to that wonderful gardenia fragrance.

    I received two very healthy plants. They are a nice size and quite compact. I have already planted them in my garden and if they do well I will order a few more. This is South Florida and gardenias do so well here that many become huge bushes so a small size is most welcome. I can’t wait to see the blooms!
