Gardenia augusta

‘Radicans’ (Dwarf gardenia)

Radicans is a genuine dwarf shrub and is ideal for semi-shaded spots. Its narrow, pointed leaves are shiny and glossy; the ideal background for the pure white, double flowers produced during spring, summer and autumn in successive flushes. The rich, spicy fragrance of the blooms is just another good reason to plant this wonderful little shrub. It prefers acidic soil that is rich in humus and tolerates light frost. It is a fantastic container plant.
