About ScentAmazing® Gardenia

Magnificent flowers and charmingly sweet aromas are what you get with the Southern Living Plant Collection’s Scentamazing Gardenia! This stunning shrub refuses to disappoint and easily becomes a fixture in any landscape.

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 use as cut flowers for fragrant floral displays. Furthermore, 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 glossy emerald green foliage is evergreen and densely foliated making it a champion in any landscape all year long. The stems are sturdy, soft brown, and accent wonderfully with the light-catching foliage.

The Scentamazing Gardenia is naturally compact, and their reliable growth habit makes pruning unnecessary. Additionally, the Scentamazing only reaches 2-3′ tall and 2-3′ W, so you don’t need to worry about it crowding your garden.

Check out a couple of other popular gardenia varieties, the Frost Proof Gardenia and Jubilation Gardenia.

Scentamazing Gardenia Care Tips

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-10.

Plant the Scentamazing Gardenia in slightly acidic soil with good drainage. Soil that is too alkaline results in yellowing leaves.

Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. In the second growing season, water once or twice a week. Shortly after planting, check the soil an hour after watering to ensure that the soil is draining well.

Plant this gardenia in Full Sun to Part Shade. If you are located in hotter zones, such as the southern United States, plant them somewhere where 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.

Fertilize once yearly in spring with a slow-release gardenia fertilizer. Otherwise, for organic gardeners, fertilize every 2 months with organic acidic plant fertilizer.

Scentamazing Gardenia Spacing Recommendations

Plant your Scentamazing Gardenias 2 feet apart for continuous foliage. Alternatively, space them 4+ feet apart to leave space in between and let their natural shape shine through.

    These little gems arrived in beautiful condition and are doing well, 3 in pots, and one in the ground. I think it’s too late in the season for blooms, but I am hopingvthey will winter well and bloom in the spring.

    Purchased 9 of these Nov 2020. They arrived as if they belonged in a showroom. We had a 1-1/2 weeks of snow (Little Rock AR) in Feb (2021). I was concerned. Didn’t phase them. It’s now their 1 year anniversary and they look great. Very slow growing, nice because I want maintenance free.

  11. Kelly Lee Bushway (verified owner)

    For being shipped in a box they looked great with lots of blooms. We planted all 6 about 2 weeks ago and they are doing well and still blooming. I couldn’t find this plant at any stores and we had them at our old house and they did great. They are slow growing and don’t need alot of maintenance like some gardenias that are more fast growing.
