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 a 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 3.5′ tall and 3-4′ 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.

    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!

    What a pleasure to work with! I placed my order on a Friday afternoon and received the order less than 24 hours later. (I live in the same state as PBM) Greg was so nice and friendly to work with over the phone. The plants arrived in beautiful condition. I can’t wait to watch them flourish in my yard! I’ll be following up with another order soon. Thanks PBM!!

    I purchased two plants. They arrived quickly and are really healthy and lush! I plan to buy many more plants from you. I am waiting to be notified when lavender is back in stock, thanks so much.

    They looked great in the box. I planted and the had pretty flowers. I had to replant them because they didn’t like full sun. I have never had problems with any of my gardenias before. I hope they will like the part shade better.

    Arrived quickly and in good shape. I could only get the smallest size and it is quite tiny but I’m sure it will grow just fine. Looking forward to seeing and smelling this next summer!

    The two I ordered looked like they ought to be on a magazine cover. Very full, healthy plants with deep green foliage. I have been very happy with this and other PBM purchases.

    Bought 3 and very pleased when they arrived with blooms and buds already on plant. Dark green leaves and dainty white fragrant flowers. Nice size, very healthy, planted in sun and so far great.
